CHURCH OF AGIOS DIMITRIANOS

The church of Agios Dimitrianos is a very important ecclesiastic building. It was constructed in the beginning of the 19th century and it is situated in the center of the village among the traditional houses.

The building is stone made and its style is gothic. Its capacity is 250 people. It has a beautiful and very tall bell tower with three electronic bells and one more in case that the other three do not work. The bell tower is placed on the west side of the church and it abuts on it.

The yard of the church is very big with fencing but it does not have paved floor. The Community Council tries to cover the floor with stones from the area within the efforts to improve the community with the contribution of the European Union.

The inside of the church is decorated with a magnificent wooden iconostasis with many old icons, a despotic throne, a pulpit and a special case for portable icons. They are all restored and in a very good condition. The special case near the west door of the church is framed with a small icon of Agios Dimitrianos. The large double face icon of the Saint is on the iconostasis. There are no wall paintings or gallery inside the church. A gallery will be constructed, as this church is the central one of the village.

The feast day of Agios Dimitrianos is on 6th November and there is a celebrating service in his church followed by a procession of his icon.
