In a secluded and lush green area north of village Pendamodi, a dirt road heads to the small single-aisled church of Agia Paraskevi. The surroundings of the temple are beautifully landscaped and here locals organize cultural events in summer.
Most temples in Crete dedicated to Agia Paraskevi are commonly found in rivers or springs. Indeed, next to the church there is a spring while nearby passes river Gazanos. There is also an old watermill.
