Description: Through a landscape of olive groves, emerges the Saint Peter church. The foundation of the church dates back to the beginning of the thirteenth century and it is on of the oldest buildings of the region. It is located in a medieval settlement and this is evident by the numerous Byzantine founds. The church has a cross-shaped plan. The masonry is an amalgamation of the cloisonne system in voluminous parts in which ancient building ruins are also engulfed.
