Pourko

Located in Pourko, between Livadi and Agia Elessa, this group of four churches located in the same structure is quite unusual. The four churches form a sort of rectangle with a single entrance on the west side. The southern church is dedicated to Agios Dimitrios, the northeastern one to the Virgin Mary, the northern one to Agios Nikolaos and the southeast one to the Archangel Michael or to Agios Vassilios. The architecture is unique. The churches show three levels of frescoes and the most interesting level is the second one, painted by someone called Dimitrios. An inscription doubling as a signature can still be distinguished: “By Dimitrios, humble archdeacon of Monemvasia, who sinned.”
