Saint George in Nisiopi

On the island of Nisiopi is the church of Agios Georgios (Saint George). The foundations of the former, larger church can still be seen. The small church that exists today was built by local people in 1953 and a service is performed annually on Saint George‘s Day when pilgrims are transported by boats from Sigri.
In 1855 it was recorded that the tomb of an English sailor existed on the island and it is rumoured that an important Turkish Despot was also buried there, but the sites are unknown.
