Churches

Saint Ioannis of Theologos

This built in the 11th century. The icons in the first stage and the sound vessels preserved until today, in straight line and in normal distances, bear witness to the beauty of these monuments. Older, at the East side of the shell of the sanctum, there was a wooden gong and a bell whose sound could be heard far away, as far as Aegina.


St. Michael of Sinadon

According to the estimations of some people, the graphic and remarkable Christian monument is a building of the 13th century. The temple gives the impression of a small church, but if someone enters in, he will realize the wealth of the icons around the walls.


Monasteries

The Retreat of Polemarxas

At first, this was a retreat by a monk, early 15th century, from the monastery of Agnoudos. Later on the monk and his students built up the monastery of the Madonna of "Polemarxa". Today there are some ruins around the monastery. We can see the cells of the monastery and the water wells. Although the monastery is unfinished we can see clearly the symmetry of the vaulted roof and the sound pots around the cells. The monastery of Madonna of "Polemarxa" is abandoned because of a scourge of pirates.
