“A small church”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is a small Greek church near the Hilton. St. Polycarp, translated means produces many works in Greek. The patron saint for creative productive types! If you are walking in the Hilton waterfront area you might give it a look!

“Gorgeous frescos!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

This church is worth a visit if you are in the area. The frescos are magnificient. Unfortunately the lighting inside the church is a little harsh.
