The church of the Panagia (Kimisis tis Theotokou) is very interesting. It is a two-aisled church in which it is obvious that the two aisles were constructed at different time periods. It has an unusual bell-tower which is dated 1627. The church also has a wooden altar screen and two layers of vividly coloured frescoes, the later one dating from 1381.
