CHURCHESFountain house walk
In Ancient Phigaleia's graveyard is an unassuming structure supported by blue scaffolding. It is not very exciting but inside is a church dating from the C13 - 14.
     Partly built from materials belonging to ancient buildings, the church has a low ceiling and the icons are crude but the atmosphere is emotive and the frescos are so fascinating they attract foreign tourists. Locals visit to keep the light of Christ burning according to Jesus' words, "I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness". You too can light a candle to remember a friend or simply as a reminder that our lives should be enlightened.
