Stumble upon this old chapel while visiting the waterfalls near Potami beach. You could easily miss it if not looking for it.It seems thee is more to it than meet the eye. The foundation is like an old fort or castle.

This is a tiniest of chapels on the road to Potami waterfalls, just a km from the Potami beach. Forgotten, run-down, but so beautiful. It is definetely worth a visit.
