Fodor's Review

One of the largest and wealthiest churches in Greece, the 18th-century church of Megas Taxiarchis commands the main square; its vernacular baroque is combined with the late-folk-art style of Chios. The church was built on the ruins of the central refuge tower. If the church is closed, ask at the square and someone may come and open up for you.
