The "Cella" of the Church

The old cella of the church in the village Asklepeio, is a simple, one-roomed ground floor structure, almost cubical in shape. The stone masonry follows the local, traditional style and the floor is made of beaten earth. It was built in 1879 and it functioned as the storeroom of the church, where oil was kept in large, clay storage vessels (pithoi), some of which are still preserved.

Castles, fortresses & fortifications

Asklipios Castle

  Above the village of Asklipios, after a 15 minute walk, visitors will find the ruins of a medieval Crusader castle. After an impressive entrance, there is little to see inside the castle except for good views over the countryside but care needs to be taken for uncovered wells. As the story goes, there was at one time a tunnel from one of the houses to the castle so that villagers could secretly gain refuge from raiding pirates.
