Christ Church at Tsourouniana
(1 Vote)

Just south of the village Tsourouniana of province Kissamo we meet the ruined church of Christ. The area is called Katalimata (Lodges) as indeed in this area there are remains of an ancient settlement with piles of stones and shells of ancient ceramic vases scattered around. In Katalimata there is also the deserted and destroyed today church of St. Demetrius. The church of Christ is a small, single-aisled vaulted church which should be built in the Venetian period. In its original form it should have been adorned with frescoes, but they have vanished. The walls are full of wild trees springing from every crack and covering the temple. From this place we have an incredible view over the bay of Kissamos.
