Beautiful sunset and a magnificent view over the whole island and especially the Chora cliffs :) The Church is suprisingly spacious considering the size of the village.

It's very high but worth the walk. I do not recommend cardiac patients. Although this is true for the whole Cyclades. Fantastic view. We can get water in the temple. Unfortunately, outside are currently being renovated.

This beautiful church can be seen best at a distance, coming back along the road to Chora from Ano Meria, when the extent of its white zig zag path and lofty position above Chora and Kastro can be appreciated. Climb up the path, no steps...More

Worth the hike up to the church. We went around sunset so the views were just incredible. You get a great view of Island and surrounding waters. The church is quaint and peaceful.

The Church of Panagia sits on the side of a hill overlooking Chora. The view from here is stunning, and its one of the best places to see the sunset. The Church itself is very beautiful too.

From Folegandros Chora this is a fairly easy zig-zag climb up the mountainside to The Monastery Church of Panagia. Perhaps best done when the high sun's heat is dropping & sunset approaching. Wonderful views from the top. The Church is open until 9pm and visitors...More

The Church of Panagia is right above the Chora of Folegandros... Going up there is a bit tiring, but the view compensates you and the Church itself is very nice!!! Not to forget that you can go by donkey!!!
