Further to the marvellous natural environment, we must consider the four churches as reference points in the village (Panaghia, Aghioi Apostoloi, Aghios Athanasios, Aghia Paraskevi). One of these, Aghios Athanasios, is byzantine. Also the scattered chapels (Aghios Georgios, Aghia Marina, Aghios Nikolaos, Prophet Elias, Aghia Triada, Panaghia Megalogenous), remains from the byzantine monasteries. A visit to the chapels is a good occasion for an interesting walk.
