Monasteries of Palaioxoras
 

THE CHURCHES IN PALAIOXORA

Palaioxora, today looks very much like a place called Mistra, with churches and ruins from houses. Only the churches have survived and the murals aren't in a very good condition. The church of Saint Nikolaos (13th century) is not very far from Palaioxora. It has many murals some of which are dated back to 1330.

Next to it is the church of Stavrou which celebrates on September. On the left is the Bacilica of Saint George the Catholic. Later on, the church was named Virgin Mary the Foritissa.

As we continue, we see the Cathedral of Saint Dionisiou who was the bishop of the island from 1576 to 1579. The Saint lived in a cell which still exists. Southern, there is a small church which is dedicated to Santa Anne. Another church that we find is a domed Basilica which is built inside a rock.

Further up and on the left from this church are the ruins of a castle which was built by the Venetians in 1654. From Saint Dionisio's cell, a path leads around the hill passing by the church of Saints Theodoroi and below that the church of Taxiarxon. The Monastery of Santa Kiriaki was the center of Palaioxora from the 12th century until 1830. Santa Kiriaki is a double Basilica with beautiful murals.

Down the path to Santa Kiriaki is the church of Saint John the theologist with a blue dome and a blue bell-tower. A few meters away is the Basilica of Saint Nikolaos. The path goes up to the Basilica of Saints Anargiron.

The church of Saint Dimitrios is on the right and higher up and the church of Virgin Mary is on the left and lower down. Above the path, is the church of Metamorphosis, whose murals have been saved. If you return to the main path, you will see the church of Saint George.
