Beautiful view. I couldn't tell you about the interior of the church. Come at sunset, bring water, a camera and make sure you are in shape. It's long walk up but worth the view and the sunset.

Lovely walk... steep it quick and the view is amazing. We went in the morning but looked into the church through the window which looked gorgeous and ornate. You must do this in Folegandros

Beautiful sunset and a magnificent view over the whole island and especially the Chora cliffs :) The Church is suprisingly spacious considering the size of the village.
