Virgin Agrelopou

Basilica of Virgin Agrelopou

Virgin Agrelopou is located near Kalamoti village.  It’s a catholicon of small monastery. It is a single -aisle basilica with a square narthex and semi-hexagon apse. The main church is covered by a vaulted system and the narthex by a hemispherical Dome. Worthy of note are the significant sculptures that decorate the exterior of the church such as the marble door frame at the entrance, and the two relief slabs on the west wall. Above the main entrance, placed upside-down is a fragment of an ionic kimatio of the classical period that comes either from Emporio or from Asia Minor. A document of 1381 refers to this church as the monastery Agrlipi in Kalamoti, and that year may be considered terminus ante quem for its establishment.
