This church is not as famous as Moni Vlachernon but it is just as beautiful and picturesque! We were lucky because the pope opened it in the moment we arrived and so we could also see the beautiful interior.

Walked round the bay one afternoon to look at the church. Unfortunately the gates are locked in the afternoons so you need to go in the morning or evening. Looks very nice from the outside.

We walked to this little church from Gouvia and found it very interesting. Lots of icons and I lit a couple of candles whilst I was there.
