On the Road to Perachora
SCHINOS (ancient oenoe)
Eight kilometers along the road from Loutraki to Perachora, by the hill, which was once the acropolis of ancient Peraea, stands the little single-aisled basilica of St Demetrius, which was built and had its wall paintings executed in 1750. These paintings - depicting Our Lady enthroned, the Crucifixion, Christ Pantocrator, the saints in attitudes of prayer, etc. - are works of great art, and a visit to the church cannot fail to be spiritually uplifting.
