Set up on the hillside overlooking Pothia. This is an ideal place to take in the scenery. Not to forget that this is a place of worship so you really must go into the church and admire the paintings. Take a walk up the steps...More

Well worth a visit just for the views. The main church is something else, so beautiful and quiet inside. Brings true peace to the soul
