Church of the Koimesis (Dormition of the Virgin)

  The church, which once stood in the centre of the modern village of Aiane, was the catholicon (main church) of a monastery, at least during the Turkish occupation. In its last phase it was single-aisled, with a tribelon (triple arched opening) between the aisle and narthex. The roof was constructed in various levels, but it seems that its original plan was different. The foundation of the monument is dated to the 10th or the 11th century. The interior was decorated with wall paintings dated to 1624, which were covered by a second layer of frescoes in 1877.
  The church collapsed in 1996 after an earthquake.
