its a very old church in the centre, maybe a great place to get married but do not know anyone that has found out about that, bang in the middle of the old town and 100 metres from the KTEL bus stop

This small church is next to the museum and a great souvlaki place. It is very rustic and well maintained. My wife lights candles every time we are there. It is small, more like a chapel than a church. Well located near shops, restaurants, cafes.
