Situated near the village of Vigli, close to Neapoli, there is an unsigned wall paintings here dating back to the 13th century. Whilst it is painted in the Byzantine tradition, the style is quite distinctive, especially the one of the Epitaphios, which depicts the Virgin Mary bending over Christ’s body, whilst Mary Magdalene mourns by his side. The church is self is cruciform-shaped, without a dome, and dates back to 1605, according to an inscription. One may need directions from locals to find the church, as it lies at the end of a dirt track.
