Byzantine church of St. Thomas

  In the centre of the village is the Byzantine church of Agios Thomas in the style of a three-aisled basilica with a narthex in front of the church. The narthex is separated into three parts and is as high as the nave of the main church. There is a large dome at the intersection of the narthex and the nave.

Panagia Spiliotissa

  The church of the Panagia Spiliotisa (Virgin of the Cave) has been built within a cave of the mountain. Just outside the cave, on the side of the mountain, there is an ancient Greek inscription of marble. Around 1910 two English archaeologists secretly excavated a statue of a goddess which is now in Boston.
