Tourism Religious

As the village was once inhabited by Christians who constructed places of worship for their religious requirements, several church ruins can be found outside and around the village. According to the oral testimony of an archaeologist who has worked for some time in excavations in the area of Radini, near Aphrodide Hill, forty sites where churches were constructed are dispersed across the territory of Alektora. As the ruins of some sanctuaries have been identified and remain visible today, this information can be corroborated to some extent. The sanctuaries of Agios Kassianos, Agios Georgios, Agios Konstantinos, and Agia Eleni, as well as the church of Agia Anna, are better known to residents today. Unknown is the exact date of their construction and demise. Most likely, they were abandoned when Muslims settled the region.
