In the centre of the village of Kirianna is the Byzantine church of the Panagia with cruciform architecture, a very large narthex in front on the same axis as the main aisle of the church, and has another extension on the side. The church has a large dome supported at the intersection of the aisles forming the cross. In front of the church there is a bell tower with three arches, unique in its beauty and detailed craftsmanship. In the church there is a piece of marble decorated with reliefs showing the life of Christ and the Saints.
