Panayia Pergaminiotissa Church, is a late Byzantine church, dating from the 11th century. Recent work to prevent deterioration of the building means it is no longer possible to get inside. However it is still worth taking a look at.

The building is square shaped, with the roof in the form of a cross, topped with a drum on which sits a small dome. The church has an interesting cylindrical apse.

 

Remaining Frescoes  

Wall paintings from the 11th and 12th centuries have mainly been removed, although there are some remaining.

Once the seat of a monastery, it is now bricked up to prevent further vandalism, and probably looks better from a distance.


Directions

To get there, take the road from Gecitkale to the northern coastal road. Four kilometers after reaching the coast road and passing the turning for Tatlisu, you will see the church on your right.
