Some very old frescoes inside and an interesting architecture. That is about it - worth a short stay. Be careful as parking on the road on the mountain is tricky.

I understand the historic and religious significance of the church. Yet to most travellers it is yet another church. Worth a stop if you happen to be passing by but nothing so impressive just to make the trip there.

An easy drive after a visit to the Bazaios Tower and what a different atmosphere! The frescoes here are a mix of historical periods that have to do with iconomachy, Cretan hagiography and stern byzantine techniques. Unfortunately there's no personnel to guide the visitor but...More

We visited this church on our tour of the island. It's situated in a lovely, charming setting, and the place itself is atmospheric and serene, full of history. The church is still being used, despite it's age, and is still in pretty good shape.

From the late 6th century, it is one of the most revered churches in Greece. Fresco remnants from that era remain. Near Moni and Haiki. Go by car or on a half day tour of the island.

This place is the real location where one can understand the genuine servitude to Divinity. Small tabernacles with poor rays of light, totally made of stone carved over several centuries, with icons painted on the walls directly (murals), dated back to the year 600 AD....More
