The church of the Old Taxiarchis, a vaulted monoklitos basilica which became double roomed in the 1794. In the north aisle is groined while in the old department there are blind arches with decorative bottlenecks used and a circular sanctuary apse. Inside there have been revealed remarkable frescoes while the carved temple of the church with many scenes from the Old and New Testament, is a work of 1833, and a representative sample of local woodcarving.

The oldest temple perhaps is that of St.Thalelaios at Agio Gala.
