The roof of Sotiras Christos Church has, unfortunately, recently collapsed, but the visitor is still able to appreciate what once must have been a beautiful church. The back wall has a relief of a child's face near the window. Tradition says that a child from the village of Fourfouras on the opposite side of the valley had seen a light in this place which led to the discovery of the icon of the Panagia. On August 6 every year the two villages celebrate together in this site.
