The original St. Dimitrios Church at Pourko

Photo by Nico Gianniotis. "This particular church consists of a cluster of four temples, a unique form of complex (only in Naxos is there a similar case) that makes it one of the island’s major attractions. The orientation is correct only for the southern and the northeast churches, while the two others are facing north." more here: https://www.kythera.gr/en/whattosee/agios-Dimitrios.php
