Church of Episkopi

It is located in the wild nature of the island hinterland surrounded by Byzantine chapels, cells, ruins of ancient buildings, wall sections, vase shells and pieces of marble sculptures. Originally it was considered the temple of Pythian Apollo. However, this building with the underground vaulted crypts has the architectural type of the Roman mausoleums: it is a burial monument of the 3rd century AD. c. However, around the 17th century, it was converted into a christian temple with a dome. The monument stands up to our day with the legends of the times that gave it its bizarre and unique form.
