Churches in Tilos

While you enjoy your long walks in the beautiful trails of Tilos, you will come across some lovely churches, monasteries and tiny chapels. Close to Megalo Chorio is located the abandoned monastery of Agios Panteleimonas, the saint protector of Tilos. The 15th-century site is surrounded by a green oasis and lies on a breathtaking location, 450m above the sea. It is worth a visit for its impressive frescoes and on July 25th the monastery organizes a three-day festival with food and local dances.

Smaller but equally interesting churches are found in Tilos like the church Archangel Michael, built over the ruins of an ancient church, close to the medieval castle. From the dozens of tiny chapels scattered among the ruins, on top of the settlement is Panagia Theotokissa, the post-byzantine church of Agios Ioannis and the church of Panagia Kamariani.
In Livadia village lies the church of Panagia Politissa, Agia Triada (Holy Trinity) a 13th-century church, Agios Vasilios and Agios Nikolaos (15th century).
