  • I took my girlfriend here recently while on holiday as she is a strong christian. As a non believer it was honestly breath taking seeing the paintings from floor to the curved ceiling of biblical stories. It will always have a special place in our hearts now as we was also there with our 6 month old little boy. We also had the chance to see Saint Dionysios at his final resting place located inside the church.
  • The most sacred place in the island, with frescoes depicts the life of saint Dionysos and also the sarcophagus of the saint Dionysos situated in the right corner.
  • Ornate and peaceful
  • Impressive building and interior. There is a short ceremony inside in which you can see a whole dead body through a glass coffin.
  • Nice place
