The Church of Panagia (Virgin Mary) at the ruined village of Kato Astraki is a single-aisled 16th century church dedicated to the Dormition of Theotokos (celebr. August 15), which bears traces of frescoes. Also on the west side there is a coat of arms depicting a double-headed eagle with the date 1555. Inside the church we see a tomb with a coat of arms on it (possibly from Kallergis family).
