Byzantine church of the Panagia
The Byzantine church of the Panagia, northwest of the village, is
built on the remains of a seventh century church. The older church was a basilica
with three aisles. The newer church, dating from the beginning of the second Byzantine
period (11C) has the typical cruciform style of the Byzantine churches. The two
axis of the cross are higher than the rest of the church which has a rectangular
perimeter. A dome with windows is on top of the church and the windows around
the church are decorated with bricks and arches. The church contains many remains
of frescoes in addition to a marble relief from the earlier church representing
a wild animal and two wild goats.
