Agios Georgios Diassoritis

The byzantine church in the lush valley of Tragea
Agios Georgios Diassoritis, Naxos

Located in the Tragea valley between Chalki and Monitsia, Agios Georgios Diassoritis is a Byzantine church built between the 10th and 11th centuries in the cruciform style with a dome at the crucifix’s centre. On the internal surfaces there many rare frescoes of the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries. It is rumored to have been built on the ruins of an ancient temple of Zeus (a common Christian practice in an effort to eradicate paganism) but this has not been officially verified by the department of archaeology.

Access to the church is possible on foot only via a rural path passing along the olive groves of the lush Tragea valley.
