No photography, no mobile phones. These signs (with symbols so not understanding Greek can't be used as an excuse) are displayed outside and inside the church, and very clear. Why do people offend the church and its followers by completely ignoring these instructions? The altar...More

You can only walk there actually the church is located to the old town so there are no roads only around the old city. You can take a bus possible- if there is - to Liston and from there is only 3 min walking distance
