Fodor's Review

Named for St. Charalambos (also known as Haralambos), a local bishop martyred at the age of 113, and whose skull is still venerated in Greece, this large, early-19th-century Greek basilica church is a relict of Çeşme's former Greek Orthodox inhabitants, and was restored by the municipality in 2012. It's worth taking a look inside as you stroll down the main street of Çeşme's shopping district. The space is now used as a cultural center that hosts art exhibitions and handicrafts bazaars; look up to see painted saints peering down at you from the ceiling.
