Greece has a profoundly Christian Orthodox population with countless examples of holy sites, historic monasteries, town centre churches and isolated chapels. Ancient Phigaleia is no exception. It has enough churches for a villager to worship in a different one on each day of the week, although some are no longer "actively" administering the sacraments.
     Of course nobody living in the village is that pious but the churches and chapels still play an important role in the everyday lives of the local community. Look out for them whilst walking around the village.
