Church of Agia Triada


Location: Lefkes   

Located in the mountainous village of Lefkes, the Church of Agia Triada is a Byzantine temple of unique architectural importance. Dedicated to the Holy Trinity, the church is the second largest on the island and was originally established on the previous location of three smaller ones (Agia Anna, Analipsi and Agios Georgios). The construction operations began in 1830 and were completed in 1835. The impressive church belongs to the basilica type, with a three-aisle pattern, including skillfully fashioned arches. The bell towers, on the left and the right side accordingly are delightful examples of architectural mastery, while the main building material used is the renowned semi-transparent marble of Paros, known as “Lychnitis”.
The interior is elaborated with frescoes that suggest artistic work of superior technique and talent, while there is an outstanding ceramic representation of the Holy Trinity crafted by the emblematic Virginia Kydonieo. Nowadays, the Church of Agia Triada is classified as a monument of special cultural significance by the Greek Ministry of Culture and definitely worths the visit.
