Karpathos chapels and churches

The chapels and small churches can be find almost everywhere in Karpathos, from the southern tip of the island to the northernmost point.

Visitors of Karpathos will meet these tiny chapels and churches in every village, on the slopes of the surrounding hills, in the valleys, and also on the top of the highest mountains. Many chapels date back hundreds of years, and some of these buildings still preserves Byzantine frescoes. The chapels are often open to public, but some are kept locked and you will have to hunt for the key in the nearest village.
