This cute Church, which is also a pilgrimage place for Orthodox Greeks, is in a central part of northern Evia. It is pretty much isolated, and there's nothing else to see and do in this part of the island. We were a week in Evia,...More

Not very crowded (we went on Saturday). Believers will be truly inspired in this place and non-believers can enjoy beautiful Orthodox pieces of art on the walls.

Beautiful building that allows peaceful thoughts & feelings to flow over you......small religious gift shop on site with Icons available. Well worth the drive, road can have your heart in your mouth in parts but well worth it.

We enjoy the journey better than the destination , but we still believe the town is worth to visit. We came in winner, weather is very cold, so we almost did not spend time to walk around the village. Driving there is wonderful and exciting.
