Known for its Middle-Byzantine architecture, the Panaghia Episcope is one of the most celebrated tourist attractions of Santorini. According to the historical resources, this church was commissioned by the Byzantine Emperor Alexios I Komnenos at the end of the 11th century and was dedicated to the Panagia which is further a Greek Orthodox appellation for the Virgin Mary. As you have a view of this church, don’t forget to see the roofs of the church that are covered with red tiles. They look exquisite and offer an old world charm. The building of this church has five entrances, two each to the north and the south, and a main entrance to the west. The center of worship is The Panagia Episkopi which is a beige-washed cross-in-square domed structure. Do attend this attraction for a contemplative sojourn in Santorini.
