Taxiarchis Church is a gem on the northern part of the island with its very nice and exciting inner decorations.İf you are in and around Mantamados area,then you must stop at this nice church and visit it.There is also a cafe inside the garden where you can also relax with any available snacks and fresh orange juice.Highly recommended.

In some ways it is to ornamental, but we looked at it in small sections and really noticed all of the details. This is another place of worship that has made me ask the question: "Why was... More
