This little church is located inside a small cave! The tale says that, many years ago a shepherd found an icon of Sint Stilianos and took it to the village’s church so the people could worship it. But the next day the icon was no there, and the shepherd found it again inside the cave. Then the villagers decided to make a little church there, dedicated to Agios Stilianos.
The path from the beaches to the little church has a lot of vegetation and it is not always accessible.
