Completely unspoilt by any attempt to update it. The frescos are original. It is easily accessible from a parking area at the roadside.

Tiny and charming Byzantine church which was the last part of our one day trip around the Island. Interestingly, the worship still takes place there. Very beautiful frescoes, a pity that in such bad shape. Why no one makes a conservation?
