Good temple. You can purchase candles, icons and other church things when visiting.

Удивительное место. Звуки колокольного звона завораживают. Всегда ухоженная церковь. А какая там чудесная служба! Восхитительное место!

Очень красивый старинный храм! Относится к Константинопольскому Патриархату, от которого произошло Крещение Святой Княгини Ольги , а также само Крещение всего Православного народа. Я рекомендую посещение храма для молитвы! ?

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
