The cavernous two-aisled church of Saint Charalambos and Saint Nicholas is located in the village Skotino, province Pediada, and has unobstructed sea views. Internally, because of being carved, it has an irregular shape and the two aisles are joined together with a large arch. The north aisle is dedicated to Saint Nicholas and ends in a small carving used as an icon shrine. According to oral tradition, the church served as a secret school during the Ottoman Era.
