Reviewed 23 June 2014

Please do go inside the bright cool interior of this ancient church. The icons are not particularly old, and they feel more Roman or Russian than Byzantine, but the overall impact is of grace and peace. The pulpit with icons of Cgrist and the evangelists is lovely. The courtyard is shaded and spacious, a lovely spot to rest on a hot day.

We visited the Castro and every church in the old town. Elkomenos Christos, with it's thrones, the old icons the secret well was magnificent. It is a church that comes alive during the holy week, at Greek Easter. We loved following the service during this week. We have decided to go back in 2015 and celebrate Easter in the Greek way.

The church and the central square are landmarks in this jewel of a town,
We loved very much to walk around the small but animated old lower town, with its quaint antique shops and cozy restaurant and bars.

The ancient icon is very beautiful. The style and location of the church is superb. The separate campanile and square make a very fitting setting.

Very atmospheric; superb icon of Christ now back in the Church and closely guarded and preserved. Certainly worth visiting after your climb up the Rock.
