SIGHTS AND MUSEUMS
HOLY TEMPLE OF SAINT DIONYSUS
The walk in the country is enjoyable, with the picturesque alleys and the beautiful buildings that adorn the squares of Agios Markos and Dionysios Solomos. Everything underlines the flourishing of civilization, especially during the Venetian period, which gave it the expression “Florence of Greece”. At first glance, the majestic Church of Agios Dionysios, the island’s patron saint, near the port, with the 40 m high tower bell tower dominating in the horizon. The church houses the relic of Saint Dionysios in a silver sculpture of a shrine, created in 1829 by George Diamantis Bafas, as well as the wood-carved and gilded “Room” of the Saint. You will be impressed by the despotic icons of the iconostasis , the frescoes and the rare masterpieces of ecclesiastical art kept in the Museum of the adjacent Monastery of Ammos.
