(1 Vote)

The church of Panagia Panokastriani is located above Kastri, province Mylopotamos, where the ruined fortress of Pano Kasteli was built. Kastri was the seat and base of the strongest Christian family during the Venetian occupation, Kallergis, whose coats of arms are located in the arch of the sanctuary.

The church of the Virgin Mary, today serving the cemetery of the village, is a two-story church dedicated to the Dormition of the Virgin and to Saint Nektarios. The south aisle is covered by a pointed arch and the south by half pointed. The aisles are separated by a pillar-based arch. The temple was built on the site of an older one, with some traces of the sanctuary. Inside there are frescoes of the 14th century
