Panagia of Chora

It is accessible on foot by the whitewashed wide steps that start from the Elementary School (Pounta square) of Chora and the view from up there is magnificent. The path passes by the cemetery and goes up helically to reach in about 15’ to the doorstep of the church with the three-arched belfry.

This is the largest and most elegant church inside the castle, which stands out at its westernmost end. The view from its yard over the sea goes all the way to Milos, Kimolos and Sifnos. It was built in the early 18th century and the costs were borne by Georgios Stais, a notable from Crete. In 1930 they found a valuable manuscript with important information on the disaster caused to Folegandros in October 1715 by the Ottomans.

Agios Antonios

Just across Agios Nikolaos to the right there is Agios Antonios, a church built in 1706, with evident Venetian influences and an elegant wooden carved temple of the 17th century. Tangent to its southern wall there is another private temple in honor of Agia Aikaterini and Agios Fanourios.

Agios Nikolaos

A single-aisle arched temple in Folegandros Chora with a dome and an arch, dedicated to the patron of seafarers. In early 2000 its cross vaults were painted by the modern Folegandrian painter Markos Venios. If you happen to be there at the night of Resurrection, you may be surprised by the skills of local people in the extemporary fireworks.
