    Due to earthquake damage it's regarded as unsafe to enter. Although you can still walk around it and take snaps. If my memory serves me, I believe there's a tiny chapel adjacent to the church where you may contemplate and light a candle. I adore Orthodox Christian churches, especially inside though.

    Beautiful setting for a mass. The priest could do with a microphone as it was difficult to hear due to the noisy birds etc. the little church was lovely and very well maintained. I specifically enjoyed being outside in the shade of the trees. Even with the noisy birds, it was still a lovely mass.

    When staying in Kos town, if you take a walk from the crowded the shopping areas and central square, you might end up towards Hippocrates street. This church is beautifully decorated and the surrounding nearby small park is a must see; Koon Agonist Monument-Park (World War II) it is where you will see the famous Giant Ficus Elastica tree. It is great location to relax too. Recommended!

    This small Church, which dates to the late Byzantine Period. It is located in it's own gated enclosure by the Archeological Site of the Ancient Agora of Kos.

    It is known as the Church of Saint George tou Arrenagogeiou (of the Boys’ School) Kos. In 1882 the school was founded and the Church was incorporated into its grounds situated in the playground.

    A simple styled design building which is almost square in shape with a red domed roof with 8 arched windows.

    Not sure if the Church is permanently closed when not in use. The gate was locked when we visited on Monday 28th September. It is possible that it was closed due to COVID 19 restrictions.

    Along the side of the Church is the tomb of Archbishop Gerasimos of Kos.

    Although the school was destroyed by the earthquake on 23rd April 1933, the Church survived. The date is the Church's feast day.

    If passing by it is worth taking a few moments to stop and have a quick look
