Panagia Hatzaliou

Panagia Hatzaliou

Walking route: Panagia Hatzaliou


Leaving Hatzipanagiotis’ mansion take the road of Plaka and follow the detour on your right. You will reach at the church of Hatzaliou in 20 minutes.

The history of the church is very interesting. It was built during the Ottoman rule by Hatzi Ali and named after him. He constructed it in order to fulfill a vow. Hatzi Ali recovered after a very serious illness exactly one week after Easter and that is the reason he built the church. It is built in style simple single-nave basilica and it has got pitched roof made of tiles. From the bottom of Prophet Elias’ hill, you can see the fertile plain of Leonidio while in the background you can look out to the sea.
