Metamorphosis Tou Sotiros Church

Built around 1833 on Kastro hill, west of Pythagorio town, the church was an initiative of one of the island’s leading figures in the Greek Revolution, Lykourgos Logothetis, in memory of the saviour of Samos against the Turkish fleet in the Battle of Mikali in August 1824. The church was built in the style of a basilica with a domed roof, and has an impressive marble iconostasis and pulpit from the early 20th century. It has been declared a historical monument.
