Panagia tis Petras (our lady of the rock)

The center of the village is dominated by the rock on top of which is the Church of Panagia tis Glykofilousas (Our Lady of the Sweet Kisses). The rock is enormous, as imposing as those of Meteora in central Greece. At a height of 40 meters, it sprouts out of the tall, slender poplars as though wishing to dominate the level landscape around it.
