Following the stone steps toward the sea from Ayia Thekla chapel, visitors will find a cross on the left-hand side carved into the stone bedrock. Underneath is an open doorway leading into a small cave entrance which leads to a candle-lit shrine. Believed to have been carved in the 4th century the area is believed to be the church’s former burial ground.
