Church of St Nicholas

Church of St Nicholas Quick Guide

Church of St Nicholas, Aya Nikola Kilisesi

Hidden behind a brick wall separating it from the main coast, the Aya Nikola Kilisesi is worth a visit, if you can gain entry by ringing the visitor’s bell. Built in 1720 and recently restored, this church houses a number of ancient icons, including one that dates back to the 11 th century as well as a host of beautifully gilded murals. Look out for the galleon ship hanging from the ceiling as you enter: it was put there by sailors out of gratitude for their safe passage at sea.
