Monemvasia - Church of the Elkomeneos Christos

Prefectural Administration of Lakonia


Monemvasia - Church of the Elkomeneos Christos

A three-aisled basilica with a dome, three apses in the east and a narthex in the west, it has undergone much repair from time to time. The church was built in the Early Christian period (6th-7th c.), and the chapel of Ayios Ioannis dates to the 11th-12th century. It has become associated with the icon of the Elkomenos - Christ in chains - which the Byzantines brought from Constantinople in the 12th century.
