Byzantine church of the Panagia

  The Byzantine church of the Panagia, northwest of the village, is built on the remains of a seventh century church. The older church was a basilica with three aisles. The newer church, dating from the beginning of the second Byzantine period (11C) has the typical cruciform style of the Byzantine churches. The two axis of the cross are higher than the rest of the church which has a rectangular perimeter. A dome with windows is on top of the church and the windows around the church are decorated with bricks and arches. The church contains many remains of frescoes in addition to a marble relief from the earlier church representing a wild animal and two wild goats.

Monastery of St. Panteleimon at Fodele

Tel: +30 2810 521266, 521281
It is almost a 5 km drive along the river through orange and plane trees. Built in the last period of the Venetian occupation, it is in complete harmony with the verdant scenery/landscape. During the Turkish occupation, the monastery constituted the center of the revolutionary action and even though it was severely damaged and pillaged it preserved its traditional architecture of a monastery.
