Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A beautiful little Church, perched high on a hill, with 114 steps to climb to get to it! There is a handrail and the steps are uneven, but it's doable.

The climb is absolutely worth it for the stunning views!

Followed the trail around Petra Old Town and climbed the steps up to Panagia Glykofilousa to look over some fantastic views over Petra bay. The church itself is currently undergoing some internal restoration which looks quiet impressive. Take some water!

Worth the walk up 114 steps - discovered as we wandered around the back streets of Petra though is very visible from a distance as it’s based on a huge rock

The church is sat on an elevated rock with good views across the village. Gardens inside the walls well tended and the interior of the church is quite atmospheric although the ambiance is spoilt a little by lots of scaffolding where repairing/repainting of murals seems to be underway.
Good for a quick half hour visit.

Quaint little church perched on a tiny mount, stunning views and lovely to see inside. Lovely walk in the old part of Petra around bottom of the mount and also stumbled upon a little balkan house museum a few yards away, also reviewed. You may want to come prepared, as to enter the church they request you have legs and shoulders covered - a thick gown is available at the door.

3/5 the church is fine and apparently very special for a lot of people. For someone who has visited loads of churches around the world this one just doesn’t do it for me. The climb is fine but upon arrival the church was going under maintenance, so the ambiance was completely ruined. The priest was priesting away while we were there which was special.
Good lookout over Petra and a must visit if you are here but you shouldn’t expect too much.
Also there was no information anywhere (not on the route to church) but also not near the church about why it was so special. No information anywhere + loads of goats (which had their paws tied up so they wouldn’t run away) = 3/5 stars for us

Interesting and beautiful, steeped in history is what makes it fascinating and climing all those stairs was well worth it.

Best view worth climbing. Amazing red roofs everywhere and big stone in the middle of the village on which church is located. Church is opened until dusk, be welcome to come inside and see the interior.
