Panagia Paraportiani Church

Located in the Hora, this church dates back to the 1400s, although it wasn’t completed until the 17th century. Its name means “Our Lady of the Side Gate”, as it was found near the side gate of the Castle (Kastro). An impressive and beautiful building, it is actually made of five separate Byzantine chapels: four of them constitute the base while a fifth was built above them as a dome.
