The Paths of Faith

The monasteries and churches of our place constitute a distinctive interest for those who want to be informed about the Byzantine and Folk Art in all its expressions: architecture, sculpture, hagiography. So, it is worthwhile visiting the historical convent “Panagia Ikosifinissas” which has an admirable history since it took part in the national wars and combats of our country. Moreover, one can be stunned by the woodcut temple of the convent which was carved by native skilled persons. In Nikisiani and Palaiochori there are plenty of churches and monasteries where the melodious voice of our candors sounds so angelically. Besides, the abbey of Saint Andrea that has been restored by Russian monks in 1919 is of great interest, too. In perfect harmony with nature is thechurch of Prophet Ilias in Palaia Avli—it is located at the foot of Pangaion—dating from 1872 as well as Saint George in Mesoropi (1836) and many others.
