Church of Afenti Christou (Lord Christ) in Kastelli

In the village of Kastelli lies the Byzantine church of the Lord Christ, in particular near the Town Hall, in the courtyard of the High School of Kastelli. It is a single – aisled arched church, the door frame of which is from the Venetian era. The facade is decorated with a double tiered brick ornament on both sides of the door, while five glazed panels, in the shape of a cross, have been embedded on the pediment. Frescoes of the 14th century are maintained inside despite the various uses of the site in the past, during the period of German Rule and as a classroom used by the residents.
