What I can see

It is one of the rare cases of ecclesiastical architecture that goes beyond the neo-Byzantine standards and is mostly a work of a modern conception, harmonized with the principles of the modern movement. It has elements of ecclesiastical tradition, such as the stained glass and the bell tower, integrated in the spirit of modern lines.

What I can't see

The small church was designed by the famous architect Konstantinos Kapsampelis, but was constructed 23 years later.
