Lonely Planet review for Church of Panagia Evangelistria
The neoclassical Church of Panagia Evangelistria is built of marble from the island's Panormos quarries. The complex lies within a pleasant courtyard flanked by cool arcades. Inside the main building the acclaimed icon of the Holy Virgin is draped with gold, silver, jewels and pearls, and is surrounded by gifts from supplicants. A hanging garden of fabulous chandeliers and lampholders fills the roof space.
Within the church complex, several museums house religious artefacts, icons and secular artworks.
