(0 votes)

At the eastern end of the village Melambes, we meet the Byzantine church of Agia Paraskevi bearing frescoes of the 14th century, divided in two phases. The temple is built next to a spring with cool water and covered by a large plane tree; even we meet the custom that the temples next to water springs were dedicated to Saint Paraskevi, the saint patron of the eyes.
