The church of Michael Archangelos is in the location Vlahiana, on the east of the village of Ano Asites. To reach it take the road east from the south entrance of Ano Asites. Continue on the asphalt road all the way until the road changes to a dirt road. Immediately after that, the abandoned houses of Vlahiana appear. Entering the village, going past a new house, you will soon see the church. The two-aisled church has well-executed decorations in relief on the exteriors of the doors, decorative plates (rosettes), and an unusual back window. From the church there is a good view of the valley below.
