Churches

Afentis Christos late byzantine church

  The fourteenth century Byzantine church of Afentis Christos (Metamorphosis) is set picturesquely in the middle of a valley and has interesting, simple, but sturdy architecture.


KATO EPISKOPI (Settlement) SITIA

The Byzantine church of Agii Apostoli

  There is the eleventh century Byzantine church of Agii Apostoli in Kato Episkopi. The beautiful cemetery church, which as the name suggests, was a bishopric church during the second Byzantine period, has an unusual rectangular shape.


PANO EPISKOPI (Settlement) SITIA

The Panagia, Agii Georgios and Ioannis church

  It is older than the church of Agii Apostoli in Kato Episkopi and appears to have been a three-aisled basilica originally. It has been renovated many times and the church has lost its original form. Apparently the renovations were done by the Venetian bishop, Vidiani.
