Agia Fotini and Potideon ruins in Karpathos island

The ruins of Agia Fotini are interesting set of stones and ancient walls, located in the suburb of Pigadia.

Archeologists said that Agia Fotini was a Paleochristian basilica, which is dated from the 5th or 6th century AD. Agia Fotini is surprisingly easy to find, because it lies next to the road which leads to Aperi from Pigadia, behind Vrontis beach. The archeological site is separated with a fence from the sidewalk, but visitors can't miss it. The ruins of Agia Fotini are one of the best known historical sites in Karpathos due to its location. The site of Agia Fotini includes some marble frames and columns of the church, and there are still some visible symbols of early Christian decorations and religious carvings. In the area of Pigadia there are some ancient ruins of Potideon also, which was one of the largest ancient towns in Karpathos.
