Michael Archangelos Church

  On the edge of the Aradena Gorge is the fourteenth century Byzantine church of Michael Archangelos, on the cliff overlooking the gorge. This church was built on the ruins of a church from the sixth century. Although the church is locked, its architecture is very attractive, as is its scenic position on the brink of the gorge. The church has a cruciform architecture based on an equidimensional cross. The church has a dome whose drum has narrow curved windows and also fourteenth century frescoes, one of them depicting the donors of the church. The bell of the church has an inscription and a drawing of saints. On November 8 the church celebrates the feast of Michael the Archangel and is open to the public.
