In the small village Monohoro, just north of Mires, is the Byzantine church of the Panagia. Take the road to Galia at the west entrance of Mires. About 500 metres before Galia a right turn on an unpaved road leads to Monohoro. The church of the Panagia contains frescoes of 1345, in one the donor is presented in a garden. The church has an unusual door with relief and paintings above the it. Another old collapsed church is just in front of the Panagia.
