Agios Georgios Church (Ruin)

About Church

On the northern side of Alektora, the ruins of a modest church dedicated to the young Saint can be found. Officially, he is referred to as Agios Georgios the Mounter. It is unknown when it was constructed and when it was abandoned, but it cannot be ruled out that the presence of the Saint’s church was a source of consolation and hope not only for Christians but also for some Muslim locals who believed in him. We can even presume that on April 23 and November 3, the days on which the Church honours his memory, believers would come reverently with offerings to pray for their health and the success of their agricultural work, as this was the primary occupation in the region for centuries.
