The Church of St. John (Lefkakia)

On the south side of the village "Lefkakia" springs this place of worship, a chapel, built on a small hill. Theories of it being erected on the tops of ancient fortress ruins of Argos or Ancient Assini have not been verified, for little information is gathered.


It can be chronologically placed during the reign of the Turks in the Greek territory and as far as its architecture is concerned, it is a basilica structure with a tiled roof.

The chapel's interior is an icon-painted one, but little is known of the artist or the date.

Tradition has it that sick children are transported through a window on the north side, something considered miraculous.
