Description

Built on the site of a former 1600 hermitage, first documented in 1779, the holy settlement hides behind the walls of the church a special iconostasis made of lime-tree wood, gilded and painted in Constantinople in 1835. A work of large size encompassing characters and elements inspired from the local landscape, the local folk dress and human diversity, though seemingly no longer observing the old iconographic canons, Nicholae Tonitza and his apprentices left their mark here to be admired by visitors. Here still, you will find a coffer with relics of St Pantelimon and St Simeon bought from Mount Athos-

Dedication Day: “The Announciation” (March 25th)
