 Church of St George of the Latins
Gate of the ruined St George of the Latins church The sketch of the church shows this to be a picturesque ruin, but typical of the French (Lusignan) style of architecture. The tall lancet shaped windows are rather highly placed and this has led some historians to suggest that it was a fortified church built in the days when the medieval walls had not yet been put up. 

As usual, the side facing Djanbulat bastion shows the most damage, but in this case one has to appreciate the great distance which Turkish cannon could reach, for the bastion is quite a way off.
