"I do not know your language, but if I knew don't will gabbled, because I speak to earth people and no from the Mars." I sometimes feel the same way, and sometimes wonder about the no from the Mars bit...

A fierce-looking lady caretaker growled "No Video" at me inside, but allowed my son to ring the church-bell by swinging on a rope hanging down the front of the building. Inside the church was dark, cool and peaceful. High on the walls there were timeworn frescoes of saints on horseback armed with lances. I later read that two faces of Christos Pantocrator looked down from the northern and southern halves of the dome - but I never saw them.

"Panagia" means "All Holy" and is always referred to the mother of Christ. I believe "Drosiani" indicates the location of the church so named - there are many others called Panagia throughout Greece. This one is more than 15 centuries old.
