Father Nikolas takes me to see the Ecclesiastical museum which is located in the courtyard of St. John the Baptist. (Pareklisi tou Timiou Prodromou -this is how we call it in Greek).
This very small chapel is built of stone and it is among the traditional houses of the village opposite the house of father Nikolas. The woodcut iconostasis is very simple but the chapel itself is very significant for the village.
The Museum is found at the back yard of the chapel and has been created to accommodate and protect the valuable icons and other precious ecclesiastical pieces which are exhibited here.
