  • 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.
  • Nice place
  • Impressive building and interior. There is a short ceremony inside in which you can see a whole dead body through a glass coffin.
  • One of the few buildings to withstand the great quake.
  • well maintained Temple!!!
