Metropolitan Church Metamorphosis tou Sotiros - Overview

  This is the most important church of Hermoupolis and nowadays the seat of the Mitropolis (bishop). Its construction began in March 1824. It may have been designed by the architect Evstratios Smirnaos, who also was the architect of the church of the Panagia of Tinos. Both churches show the same architectural pattern. The precinct of the church was generally used for meetings, while its cells served as a hospital. After 1831, the church underwent many changes. In 1917, the building was extended and the chapel of Agios Fanourios was added to its northern side. Three gates lead to the precinct of the church. Its floor is decorated with mosaics of red, white and black pebbles. The Bishop's Residence, to the North of the church, is a two-storeyed building with arched windows.
