Church/Monastery in Northern Evia


Perhaps one of the most famous churches throughout the region is this chapel in the village of Prokopi in Asia Minor. Built in 1951, in honours a simple Christian man, Ioannis, who after fighting against the Turks in his native Russia, was captured, made a slave, and taken to his owner’s estate in Evia.
