There is a legend that a treasure is buried under this church. In 1989, cleanup work was carried out on the territory of the church, and a tractor that was raking out garbage fell into an underground void. Eyewitnesses thought that this was the dungeon where treasures were buried, but their expectations were not met: only an old bottle of wine was found underground.

ehh..not enough information on such an amazing and unique masterpiece of historical and architectural memory :/ I heard that there are underground passages in the church, in which there are caches with treasures..These are legends. But after all, every legend has real facts behind it ...
