Panagia Lagadiotissa

Panagia Lagadiotissa is a 12th century church built literally inside the rock.
According to local tradition Constantine Palaiologos attended divine service here when he started his historic journey to Constantinople in 1449.
Its space is evocative mainly due to the rock that isolates it from bright light and noise. The walls are painted red and they are filled with icons. The altar is built even deeper and has strong signs of erosion that testify to its age. The church is connected to the village of Parori by a beautiful hiking trail. The beauty of the gorge, the cool breeze from the shade of the trees, the running waters and the smell of wildflowers will be your company as you walk through the trail.
