This is a fabulous Greek Orthodox Church. The inside is lovely and houses a rare icon; the wonderfully preserved Christ in Chains. The walk through the town is also great.

Beautiful church in a fabulous place. Wander through the cobbled streets of the castle ruin and you come to this lovely church. Lovely and it's all free entry.

Interesting and well-restored in a lovely little square amidst the quaint shops and restaurants in the lower town. Also where the start of the way up to the old upper castle town is.

A lovely old church with none of the indulgent extravagance of wealthy churches. The bell tower is beautiful overlooking the gorgeous water.

Monemvasia is amazing, a wonderful place to visit. Christos Elkomenos is a lovely church and the plaza or area around it is inviting and a lovely place to linger and soak in the beauty.

Monemvasia is just a jewel. No single building is extraordinaire, but the town as a total is just amazing.

The entire island of Monemvasia is unique, the views from the top are amazing and the remarkably preserved Church of Christ in Chains is such a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The old icons, especially that of the carefully maintained Christ in Chains which had been stolen and...More
