Fodor's Review

On the acropolis of ancient Eresos, overlooking the coastal area and beach, are remains of Archaic pre-Classical walls, medieval castle ruins, and the AD 5th-century church, Ayios Andreas. The church has a mosaic floor and a tiny adjacent museum housing local finds from tombs in the ancient cemetery.
