On the Road to Perachora
SCHINOS (ancient oenoe)
HOLY CHURCH OF
In the east of the city of Loutraki, on the foot of the Gerania mountain, is the imposingly serene and of double hypostases holy church of Agios Fanourios and Apostle Kosmas Etolos.
The commemoration of the Saints is devoutly celebrated on August 24 & August 27 respectively every year.
The church was built in 1968 on the foundations of another smaller church and was consecrated by His Reverence Metropolite Panteleimona on July 31, 1969. It is built with a double casted tiled roof and an eight-sided dome with a single foiled window on each side.
The courtyard, in the west, is nicely planted and in the north stands the imperial Campanile adjoined to the main temple with an arched pilar shed.
The inside walls are beautifully detailed with Saints and Byzantine Signs. Of special interest is the hagiography in the inner dome, of Pantocrator.
A fine oratory dedicated to Agios Prokopios has been recently added, in the north of the church.
