It is not easy to find, and requires you to traipsing through the streets of the neighborhood Kastra (better not get there by car, 10% or more gradient roads, narrow and without parking). Not far away there is a bus stop in autobus...ma until after lunch!

Perhaps the most beautiful among the many Byzantine churches, along with St. Nicholas orphan, despite their small size.
