“Old church lies quietly in the deep”

Reviewed 30 June 2017 via mobile

It's a little difficult to find the route of it, because from the outside we see only soccer field and sport facilities. Also there is only us there.
30 minute is enough for photographing if you want to have a peep, I would say that it's nothing too special for an atheist.

Worth visiting if you have a car and are in Kakopretria. Lovely frescos inside, bright colours. 15th century 'extra' roof is quite unusual.

Very nice church. History was interesting. Our guide gave us information about the beautiful paintings. The entrance was free.

We got there just before it closed, and the woman was nice and stayed for a few more minutes as we looked around. Beautiful paintings inside. Recommend.

Unbelievable in a way this is actually a church, but that's the beauty of several of these churches under a UNESCO inscription. It's this that got us to visit and I'm very glad we did. The architecture itself is interesting and unusual and the frescoes inside are vivid and beautiful. Can't believe it's been here since 11th century (with various improvements of course). The entrance to the church is free and there's a large enough car park next to the gate and the guardhouse - the car would be your most convenient way of getting there. The church is open and available in normal visiting hours, someone is always there (as opposed to some other paited churches.)
