CHURCH OF PANAGIA FANEROMENI
Panagias Faneromenis’ Church follows the single basilica type, dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. The church is a testament to the island’s rich history and religious heritage. Probably the specific church was constructed on the site of an earlier temple, with architectural elements and iconography spanning the 17th to 19th centuries.
An inscription above the church’s entrance reveals its historical significance as a monastery dependency of the renowned St. Dionysios monastery on Mount Athos. This connection adds a layer of cultural depth to the spiritual sanctuary that is Panagias Faneromenis Church of Skopelos.
Panagia Faneromenis Church stands out from all points of the country thanks to its long clock, which chimes with every change of the hour. This hourly sound offers a different dimension to Skopelos Chora’s exploration.
In the Church, there are Catechetical meetings for the students. Those meetings will serve as educational gatherings focused on religious instruction, providing participants with insights into faith and spirituality. In addition to catechetical meetings, various activities, games, excursions, cultural, artistic, and sports events will take place.
