  • She was in the church and museum of church books and robes (building behind the temple) in the days leading up to the day of the veneration of St. Dionysius (August 24). The temple is small, but very richly decorated. People flow to the tomb of the saint with an endless river.... He is very revered on the island. August 24 was at the procession in honor of the elder Dionysius. The streets of the city, where the procession was supposed, were blocked in the morning. People arrived and arrived.... It seemed that all the islanders and numerous tourists had flocked to the city.... The holiday began with the passage of brass bands of policemen, firefighters, schoolchildren... It's wonderful! ...

  • Plain looking from the outside but stunningly elaborated decoration inside the church. Filled with tourists but felt very calming and peaceful.  more »
