Though small in size, this chapel is a local gem, featuring original Ikarian architecture and dating back to 1806. Today visitors can visit the church which leds between the villages of Christos and Agios Dimitrios within the area of Raches. Within the church’s interior, visitors will see ornate frescoes and a wooden cross above the mantle. Also of intererst are a copy of the Holy Gospels dating back to 1872, and a liturgical pamphlet from the 19th century. Near the monastery lie the remains of an old watermill which supplied the village of Christos with water.
