“Little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

If you are into byzantine history and art you are gonna love this tiny byzantine church hidden in the small streets of Ano Poli. Exquisite frescos. Atmosphere that takes you back many centuries. You have to walk a small distance to get there. There is no adjacent car park, buses cannot go anywhere near and even taxis may avoid to drop you off right in front of the church. Check visiting hours. Remember this is a functioning church - with liturgies , vespers etc - avoid during these hours unless you want to attend.
