  8. 8. 8 When we finally reach the Varaba’s church which is of great archeological value and has been characterized as a Byzantine monument, we can see that it is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, figs and pine trees. All these are very common trees, which we find in our town, because they are particularly prosperous.
