This is remarkable church, because it was the only Orthodox Church on the island which was built in a more or less modern architecture, with a special kind of tower. Perhaps modern at the outside, the interior is quite equal with other churches: a nice iconostasis and icons; in this church of course of Agios Nikolaos. The church had a strong smell of incense and there was even a special chimney constructed.

The location of the church is stunning, standing on a cliff overlooking the bay and beaches of Potami.

Directions: By car or on foot, follow the road from Karlovasi (harbour) to Potami; the church is signposted.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
