Sts Paraskevi and Panteleimon at Galifa
(1 Vote)

Near the village Galifa, province Pediada, survives the two-aisled church of Agia Paraskevi and Agios Panteleimon. The temple dates back to the 13th century and bears great frescoes of a provincial painter, in very good condition.

The church, a former monastery, was built in the riverbed of the rocky gorge of Galifianos River and is accessible via bad cement road, a few meters long. Traces of monk cells survive. The monastery was build here because of the spring of fresh water that is located inside the temple. The water is supplied to a second exterior trough.
