This is a very interesting place to visit. It is amazing that the church was open and you can leave a small donation and light a candle for a loved one!

Felt very privileged to be able to visit this beautiful church. Quite breathtaking ceiling paintings and beautiful icons. The Venetian castle has been restored inside to provide easy access for visitors and has lots of information on more recent Samos history.

A lovely hike into the woods, to the waterfalls. Observe the architecture of the old Metamorphosis church. Behind the church is a path leading up to the ruins of the Venetian castle. Don't forget your camera!
