St George

  The church of Saint George of Drosero is situated in the cemetery of the village. It was built in 1863 in a building plot that belonged to an English named Adot, when Metropolite of Moglena (Aridea) was Ioannis Rabatzakis, who later was islamized. The church has been built in the Byzantine style and contains a narthex and a place set apart only for women. There is a lapidary inscription with the date "1863". Inside the church there are wall paintings on the two architraves of colonnades. The icon screen, which is curved at Mount Athos, has woodcut and written folk decoration and icons dated in 1863 and 1864. Plentiful decoration is maintained on the ceiling, on the narthex and on the multi colored parapet of the place for women.
  On the Beautiful Gate of the icon screen there is the date "1890". Portable icons, books and relics of the second half of the 19th century, are maintained on the Holy Floor area. Outside, it has been plastered with a thick layer of lime and its bell tower has been pulled down. The first priest of the church was father Ioannis Zavlaris. The church is preserved as it is and operates occasionally.
