Fodor's Review

The enormous five-domed post-Baroque church of Ayios Therapon was designed by architect Argyris Adalis and was completed in the 1935. The church is dedicated to Saint Therapon, whose name means healer, and it's been visited by many people who came to Lesvos to recuperate from illness. It has an ornate interior, a frescoed dome, and there's a Byzantine Museum in the courtyard that's filled with religious icons.
