Early Christian Basilica of Agia Paraskevi in Halkida

Considered the protectress of Evia’s capital city Halkida, the church of Agia Paraskevi was first built during the 5th century AD. Despite its large size and historic importance, the church itself is quite modest and is divided into 3 spaces within its interior. A number of notable Byzantine and Venetian nobles were buried onsite, and a gravestone from the 14th century AD can still be seen today.
