Die Eleistria-Kirche in Koroni

The Church of the Patron Saint of Eleistria (i.e. The Merciful holy Virgin) was erected in the southern historical and rocky slope between the sea's immensity and the Castle. It was erected within three years time as a psalm rising in the sky the generous fruits of the faith of the people of Koroni.
