The Old Taxiarchis

Before the construction of "Big Taxiarchis" the villagers used to have as their main church that of Old Taxiarchis. You can go to this church by following the road which starts from the square. The dome with the icon and the suspended oil-lamp at the side road he will meet, the "proskynima" as it is named, leads to the old church of Taxiarches.

The Gate of the Castle

The Gateway of the castle is named by the natives as "door of the captain", that means the door of the governor (it derives from the Italian word "capitano"). The monoliths of which it consists are remarkable as well as the iron door that remains in an excellent condition.
