Church of Saint Kyriaki


Saint Kiriaki Church at Labiriana
(3 votes)

Very well hidden at a dense grove with oak trees and ancient olive trees is the cemetery church of Agia Kyriaki at Labiriana, Selino district. The very small settlement is just 2km away from Kandanos. Agia Kyriaki feast takes place on July 7, and is dated to 14th century or maybe later.

It is decorated with frescoes of 14th century and there is an inscription mentioning date 1405. It was a temple with very rich wall frescoes, but today most hagiographies are damaged. We can discern Agios Panteleimon, Evangelism, Panagia (Virgin Mary). If you look the chapel from outside, it is very simple and has some modern additions. In order to find the temple, we should follow the signs from Kandanos village, through a very nice route.
