This famous and ancient church will be on your itinerary as its in the main town on the Island. What I found fascinating was the structure of the church and the baptistry as they date back to a time when many of the inhabitants of the island would have been converted as adults (such structures are not seen in Greek orthodox churchs as it is no longer a church that very actively seeks converts). If you close your eyes this helps transport you back to the later days of the Roman Empire when Greece was slowly being converted away from its classical beliefs and into Christianity.

Didn't actually count the doors but pretty sure there weren't a hundred, which is probably just as well ;)
