St. Sabbas ChapelBuilt on rocks on the northern slopes of Boztepe overlooking the Old Christian Cemetery, the history of the St. Sabbas Chapel dates back to the 13th-15th centuries.
Access to the chapel that is a two-storey structure consisting of three chapels carved into the rock, was provided by natural stairs carved into the rock.
According to Anthony Bryer and David Winfield, writers of The Byzantine Monuments and Topography of The Pontos, Kings of Trabzon named III. John and Michael Komnenos were imprisoned in this chapel.
