What's Panagia Episkopi like

Panagia Episkopi is a Byzantine church built in the 11th Century by Emperor Alexios A’ Kominos and is home to the icon of Panagia Glikofilousa. It's the oldest church in Santorini and considered the best example of traditional ecclesiastical architecture on the island.

Within the small church are a number of icons, frescos and other religious artwork as well as some ornate carvings. Outside there's beautifully well kept gardens with trees, potted plants and flowers making it a delightful place to spend some time.

Panagia Episkopi is located in the village of Mesa Gonia. It's around 6.5km south east of the capital Fira and that's about a 15 minute drive. There’s not a great deal else to do or see in the village but it’s a lovely place to have a wander around.

The opening hours are from 10.00-12.00 and 14.00-17.00 so if you arrive in the middle of the day when it's shut you'll need to grab some lunch or come back later.
