priest Nikolas Papanikolaou, priest Andreas Bouras and other led always by priest
Georgios Rigas, the great scholar and author of the island. The Church of "Trion
Ierarchon" is a basilica of three aisles, built in 1846. It is built in the centre
of the village near the beach. In this church there is the icon of Panagias tis

the visitors of the island. Many sacred heirlooms from all the country churches
of the island have been transferred into this church as well as many icons of
great archaeological value. all these sacred heirlooms are in perfect functional
condition. Here services are held according to the old ritual and the tradition
