Village of Melandras




In the abandoned village of Melandra there is a church dedicated to the Holy Prodromos. It is a simple arched stone temple. Signs of abandonment are visible inside the church, as all of the icons have been removed from its iconostasis. The unique image of the church is that of John the Baptist.
