'No photo, no camera, no photo' is the mantra chanted in this 15th century church. Unlike remote chapels where you can sneak a snap or two, the attendants here keep a sharp eye out for any offending photography. Which is a shame, because it is highly decorated and has one of the best patterned pebble 'hokhlaki' floors we'd seen.

The icons looked brand new in comparison to other churches we'd visited, but apparently these were done in the 18th century by an artist from the neighbouring island of Symi. Male and female saints are segregated to either side of the altar.

So here's a picture of the church towers from the courtyard...it's a lovely spot with flowers spilling across the white washed walls. And they can't stop you from taking photos here.
