VILLAGESByzantine Church of Taxiarches / Archangels Castle
POLICHNI
Polichni sits on the plain of Stenyclarus under the shadow of Mount Ithome. As well as three churches, it has a few tourist attractions: the Archangels Castle and the adjacent Byzantine Church of Taxiarches plus a lake built around the ancient spring of Devari. Nearby was the Karnesian Grove, a place sacred to the Great goddesses where the Andanian mysteries were celebrated. A stone inscribed with the rules of the mysteries was removed to Konstantini's church.
     Once the Devari lake was used for boating but the café blew up and visitors stopped coming. It is the perfect spot for a picnic or just to sit and stare.
