This is one pretty church with a beautiful surrounding. It's your traditional orthodox church set on the hill that overlooks the harbor. A great place for worship.

The church is set in a lovely area with bonsai trees and spacious land. Do take off your shoes to go inside to peek at the lovely little sanctuary. It's really pretty and ornate!
