Dormition of Theotokos Church remains known for its frescos, which narrate the visions of St John the Theologian. The Byzantine church dates back to the 11th century. Its frescoes are of a newer date, created in the 1670s. These images are rarely found outside Mount Athos, which makes the church a worthwhile visit for anyone interested in religious art and Byzantine church architecture. You'll also find a small church museum on site, which displays additional icons, books, and religious objects. Nearby, the old oil press houses the village museum--another worthwhile stop on your tour.
