The three-aisled Byzantine church of Agios Georgios Kamariotis is dedicated to Agios Nikolaos, Afentis Christos and Agios Georgios. Its entrance door, between the narthex and the main church, is unique with exceptional decorations. Above the entrance door is the lion of St. Mark and on the two sides are coat of arms of the fourteenth century. The central aisle has the coat of arms of Kalergis (an important Cretan family during the Venetian era) and the Byzantine double-headed eagle. On the south door is the date 1629.
