At the east entrance to this village is the partly ruined church of Agios Mamas which was built around the 12th century and rebuilt in the 16th century. Most of the surviving frescoes date from the 16th century. About 1.5 km to the west is the 16th century cruciform church of Panagia Chordakiotissa and the church of Agios Georgios, an Early Christian basilica with three aisles.

LIOPETRI VILLAGE

Here is a 16th century church dedicated to the Virgin Mary and the 15th century church of Ayios Andronikos, with an octagonal dome and murals which can still be distinguished in the apse. Liopetri still carries on the traditional craft of basket-making.

Towards the sea front you can find Liopetri Potamos (river). A picturesque fishing refuge. Nearby are the remains of a Venetian watchtower. The French poet Arthur Rimbaud worked in this area in the 1880's.
