    A pleasure to reach it. At sunset all is more fascinating. Take place in the heart, like all Folegandros!

    We had heard about this place and visited just before sunset. The path is a little uphill but nothing. The commanding view of the Church and the view from the cliffs just above is great, if you stand in the right spot is seen over much of the island and the sun setting on the opposite mountain. But what makes the scenery magnificent in my opinion is the huge cliff on the edge of which is built the island country, which makes the landscape a little more wild and spooky but and worthy of admiration. After this unique experience, I find it hard to fathom how fantastic this site to enjoy the sunset is not "heard" more.

    Whoever visited folegandros, should go anyway to see this masterpiece. We visited the Church just before sunset and we waited for the sunset sitting along with the rest of the world in the courtyard of the Church. The view is incredible and despite the fatigue of the uphill (we did about 20 minutes to climb) what you see to compensate from all points of view. The Church is also very beautiful. Need to learn just for the hours they are open. There is also a plaque in the beginning of the route in a conspicuous place.

    Fantastic view from this tiny iconic Greek church. Love the winding steep foot path leading up to the church. There are ancient statues and columns here...both laying about and integrated into the bell tower. Many a wedding is had here in the summer. Picture perfect.

    Church of the Holy Virgin, the service is only on major holidays.
