Church of Christ in Chains is an oasis in the main square and it has limited opening hours.
If it is open make the most of it and have a look as it is beautiful inside.

This church is right in the main square of Monemvasia shorty after yo enter the town through the gate. The courtyard has great views of the sea and a canon is still there. The church is well preserved and a great historical presence to this small walled city.

The narrow streets of Monemvasia become rapidly crowded with tourists during the season, particularly when a cruise ship is anchored. Inside the church however, there is calm and peace. Enter, sit down, admire the decorations, say a little prayer and leave, spiritually and physically refreshed.

We were so fortunate to have the opportunity to see the Icon at the Christos Elkomenos. With the theft and damage to the icon, it has only been recently returned to its home, with significant security precautions in place. The church is lovely, but definitely visit to experience the icon.
