Description: The structure of the church dates back to the 12th century, and it is one of the most known locally. Its style is closely affiliated to the Athenian type with a vaulted dome. During the Ottoman rule the whole region where destroyed, later though the church was restructured and a small chapel was attached to the main church devoted to Saint Savas.
