The church is interesting in it's antiquity but on a hot summer's day, or any time, really, the walk through the woods beyond is especially pleasant.

Lovely old church, now sadly neglected, well worth a look. Castle ruins also interesting and wonderful views.

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.

Continuing on along a small stream you arrive at a waterfall that can be seen by a swim in the fresh water very refreshing! Further along and up a steep incline (stairs)... More

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!
