A tour in Avdou and around

 

Leaving the settlement of "Potamies" behind, follow the provincial road to the east. To your left, you will cross by the village "Sfentyli". A few kilometers further to the east, you will reach the village of "Avdou", a beautiful settlement that offers a variety of sights and activities to visitors. In this historical settlement there are 5 Byzantine temples preserved, featuring valuable frescoes:

 

  1. The temple of "Aghios Antonios"
  2. The temple of "Aghios Georgios" (inside the cemetery)
  3. The temple of "Evaggelismos tis Theotokou" to the east, located next to the school that also serves as a theatre during the summer and hosts various art events.
  4. The temple of "Aghios Konstantinos"
  5. The church of "Koimisis ths Theotokou", in a distance of about 300 m. northwest of the village, on a low hill.
