Worth the trip to Malbis to see this gorgeous church. The murals are absolutely fabulous. They are open during the day; free to visit but an offering can be made. Prayer candles are available to light.

If you can catch the church open, do go in. So awesome. Light a candle for your loved one. Enjoy the serenity. Then go outside and tour the cemetery. Very interesting. The Greek history is all abound.
