Not far from the village to the east, there is a small chapel of Virgin Mary of Hrysogalousas.It Was built in 1700 – 1711 and the temple can take in up to 150 people.
It is a Small and plain chapel, between the mountain and the river. It is made of stone externally, monokliti type architectural and constructed with triangular roof.
Internally it is white. Its Beautiful and woodcut temple dyed with gold paint and enriched with portable pictures, gives the wealth and the tastefulness of the sculpture, in the space of the temple. Further down the wooden women’s quarter makes its presence perceptible. It probably takes in around 30-50 women. When you visit the chapel, entering it you will find few chairs, in order for the religious person to get some rest and be dedicated for a while to the miraculous Virgin Mary Hrysogalousa.
The belfry is in the roof of the sanctuary.
The dedicated picture of Hrysogalousas is dated since the 15th century and is saved in the chapel.
For the way the picture was found, from information we had they say that:
Easterly of the chapel, two – three kilometres distance, while a shepherd was grazing his sheep; suddenly a light appeared in front of him. He followed it and led him to a cave. Entering this cave, this light led him face to face with the picture of Virgin Mary of Hrysogalousas. Further down outside the cave, there is a rock where the holy water of Virgin Mary is. Under this rock there are stalactites. On the one side of the rock the breast of woman appears to be shaped, where from that rock sour milk comes out. The strange phenomenon that happens there until today is that, as rough as the river goes, its overflowing does not mix with the holy water according to the resident’s testimonies.
The Virgin Mary Hrysogalousa is celebrated on 15th August.
