If you are lucky and you visit the church on Good Thursday - Friday you will have the chance to see a beautiful epitaph covered in flowers. Girls can enter the church... More

A wonderful church to visit in the middle of town on your way up to the Acropolis. Exquisite interior oramentation, which, unfotunately, cannot be photograhed.

This is quite an eye opener. It was rather hot during the service in summer but this church is beautiful. I did find the St Christopher Icon rather strange and if anyone can give me more insight into it I am most interested

Do not leave without visiting the church. Beautiful byzantine cruciform church, buil on the ruins of a paleochristianic basilica which was a converted temple of Godess Athena of Lindos, who was also celebrated on August 15th..You are not allowed to take photos of the breathtaking interiour but it is absolutely worth a long stop.
