Chapel of Timios Stavros

The chapel of Timios Stavros is built on a prominent position and more specifically on a hill overlooking the entire village.

The chapel of Timios Stavros was built in 1625. It is a single-aisled church with a wooden ridge roof and it is built with local stone. What is worth mentioning is that the interior of the church and mainly the narthex are adorned by 16th century hagiographies. According to Karouzis*, it is not known whether the entire church was covered by hagiographies from the beginning.
