Built inside a rock in the sea.
On the hill Anemoutsa, 3km from the village.
Founded in 1378 by St. Lavrentios, monk of Mount Athos.
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.
