Church of Prophet Elias

On the central hill of the village of Episkopio , there is the total white church of Profitis Ilias. At the western main entrance and above the vestibule ,visitors can see a marble inscription which indicates that the temple was built around the end of the 17th and the beginning of the 18th century.

Today, the church is perfectly preserved both externally and internally. Its interior is decorated with beautiful icons and its temple has some excellent work from the great painter Nestoras Varveris depicting the Deposition of Christ, the Descend from the Cross. These icons brighten the church and bring peace to the hearts of the pilgrims.
