Panagia Thymiani Church in Komitades

The historical church of the Panagia Thymiani can be seen from the road as you approach the village from Sfakia. It was here that the Rebellion of 1821 against the Turks was proclaimed by 1,500 men from all the Sfakia villages. The church was destroyed by the Turks, as it was also in 1867.
