Church of Twelve Apostles, Pirgos Ithomis

The Church of the Twelve Apostles is 700 metres south-east of the village and is the only church of Pirgos Ithomis. Built as a basilica in the 19th century, it boasts a wood-carved altar screen crafted by woodworkers from Metsovo in 1850. The stone-built bell tower was added in 1930. One of its most interesting features are its excellent acoustics due to the incorporation of a system of clay amphorae within the walls when they were built. The Church has been declared a historic monument.
