Byzantine Church "Christos Elkomenos" | Monemvasia
Updated: Nov 20, 2019
This small church, dedicated to Jesus Christ who was led to his torture, is located in Kato Poli of the old town of Monemvasia.
The church celebrates on Thursday of the Easter Holy Week. The history of this monument is long, as it was damaged by invasions from pirates and its icons were stolen, most from Byzantine emperors. The construction of the bell tower ended in the 18th century.
