Located on the pathway heading down to the Potami Waterfalls trek, this is really an unheralded piece of ancient history. It is a 13th century church built over an earlier pre-Christan era church. It feels ancient when you enter. It is not very far in...More

Stumble upon this old chapel while visiting the waterfalls near Potami beach. You could easily miss it if not looking for it.It seems thee is more to it than meet the eye. The foundation is like an old fort or castle.

A historical small chapel with ancient greek columns. One of the oldest churches you will ever enter. Very spiritual
