Church of Menetes village

The most famous church of Menetes was built on a steep cliff, in the eastern side of the village.

When you visit Menetes from the direction of Pigadia, you will see some houses, which were built above the cliffs. One of the most noticeable buildings is the church of Menetes, which is known as Kimissis Tis Theotokou (Church of Dormition of Virgin Mary). The church was built in 1845, and many stones of ancient Arkesia were also used to build the church.
