The church of Eleistria
In Eleistria's southern part, in the cellar is the crypt where
sculptures were found, which purifies both natives and foreign votaries
The Church of the Patron Saint of Eleistria (i.e. The Merciful holy
Virgin) was erected in the southern historical and rocky slope between
the sea's immensity and the Castle. It was erected within three years
time as a psalm rising in the sky the generous fruits of the faith of
the people of Koroni.
