It's quit a walk up a steep path with sometimes scary corners if you have fear of heights, but once you at the church you are rewarded with stunning views over a large part of the island.
The church itself is nice too.
Be aware it's only open from 18:00 till 21:00

Beautiful church perched high above the city of Chora, Folegandros. The walk to the Church affords you a beautiful view of the surrounding area. A wonderful place to visit.

A beautiful spot to walk to for views of the island and to sit and reflect. Keep walking beyond the church for even better views.

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.

This is one walk that’s really worth the effort. The path; whilst steep in sections and very (very) close to the cliff edge at a couple of corners, is mostly step free so you can take a gentle pace to reach the church. It’s an easy walk best done in the evening warmth rather than the midday heat!! Takes about 20 minutes. The church is only open from 18:00 to 21:00 each night and is very simple inside. It’s manned and they offer cooled water and you can purchase candles etc. The view from the top is simply stunning, you can see all around the island and it offers a lovely view of Hora. The main attraction is of course the sunset, for us in June this was just before 9pm - if you want a good spot arrive early otherwise the best spots are taken by the selfie-stick wielding mob!

Church is open 18:00 to 21:00 each day and beautiful inside it is. Its worth walking up just for the views and one of the best places on the island to watch the sun set on a beautiful day. Not as impressive as the Monastery on Amorgos but still worth the climb.

It is the number one destination !!! The best view on the island, with stunning color at sunset! You must have water with you and a little patience, because the road is steep! Necessary, the camera and a tripod !!!

It was so worth the hike! Have some wine with you and climb to the hills next to the church to watch the sunset. Unforgettable!

A must in Chora. Worth the 15 mn walk. Donkey available for young or old people (5€ the trip to the church). Amazing view on Folegandros!
