Location: Chora

The Church of Agios Georgios is one of the main landmarks in Koufonissia, since Saint George is the patron saint of the island. Celebrations to honor him take place every year on April 23rd. It is located in the heart of Chora, under a pine tree.

The church has a typical Cycladic architecture and it is whitewashed, with blue details, a dome and a beautiful belltower. It was constructed in 1870 and in order to build it, lava from Santorini and pillars, as well as other ancient marble fragments from another temple were used.

Inside the church, you will find an impressive templum that dates to 1890 and an icon of Saint George. The saint's relics are also being kept in the church.
