Chapel of Timios Prodromos

It was built in the 12th century outside the village of Kato Drys, in the midst of the fields. It is a small country church that can barely host 15 believers. Externally it is made of stone with simple tiles and its back end resembling a Byzantine structure. Remains of the foundations and a wall can be seen there today, something witnessing the previous existence of an old church of "Timios Prodromos" (John the Baptist) that got demolished. Internally it is very humble, simple, and inconspicuous. The icon dedicated to John the Baptist comes from the renaissance and it is placed upon a special icon-stand in the "Panagia Eleousa" church. A liturgy takes place in it once or twice a year. The region's faithful show great reverence. It celebrates on the 24th of June.
