Agios Georgios Diasoritis in Naxos

The church of Agios Georgios Diasoritis in Naxos Greece, Cyclades: Quite close to the picturesque village of Halki, in the path that leads towards the Monoitsia settlement, visitors can find a small yet impressive church that is dedicated to Saint George.

Built in an idyllic mountainous region, in the valley of Tragaia, the church is estimated to have been constructed upon the remains of an ancient temple and dates back to the 11th century. The architectural style it exhibits is quite rare for the region of Naxos, as it is a Byzantine edifice that belongs to the cruciform genre with symmetric lines and a dome. The church is built upon four columns and features impressive stone arches, as well as includes tombs, most of which are empty and pre-existed its resurgence.

What is most striking regarding the temple is its interior, which is evidently the work of a skillful artist. The enchanting frescoes are well-preserved to this day and impress with their colors as well as elaborate style and illustrations. The most prominent ones portray Saint George, the archangel Michael and Saint John, while others depict major celebrations of Christianity.
