Description: Architecturally the church follows the traditional Athenian style, having a cross-in-square plan with a dome, with some amalgamations in its overall structure. The small church is elegant and balanced proportioned.
The interior of the church bears some frescoes of exquisite beauty that dates back to the 13nth century.
It is one of the most well known churches in the area and it is considered to be the “Archangels miraculous,” church by the locals.
