Home Page What to see Churches Agios Andreas (Livadi)

Agios Andreas (Livadi)

Hidden behind the main street of Livadi, lies the church of Agios Andreas. The church –which has undergone extensive maintenance- has a first layer of Byzantine frescoes dating back to the 10th -11thcentury, a second layer from the 13th century and a third post-Byzantine layer from the16th century. In its current form it is cruciform with a dome and a narthex added later. It has possibly gone through five different building stages, the initial construction being a Kytherian type single-room building with a dome from the 10th century. It later changed into a one-aisled cruciform with a dome and subsequent additions were made, such as the iconostasis in the 15th -17th century and the bell tower in the early 20thcentury.
