Churches


Paxos has always had many places of worship, in 1686 there were 39 churches, 45 in 1739 and 51 in 1781.

Today there are 64 on the island including 2 Palaiochristian churches from the 6th century (Agia Marina and Agios Stefanos in Porto Ozias). All contain a wealth of architectural and artistic features such as temple made of marble, doors, windows, belfries, painted icons, valuable archaeological material and fantastic murals.

These constitute a remarkable heritage for the island.
