The church of Holy Mother of Keriotissa was built around the 16th century. It is located in the center of the village-Keri, in the southern part of the island. What will impress you
from the church is the huge Venetian tower which when ringing the bells, wakes up the whole village. Inside the temple you will see many great works of art, a carved and gold baroque iconostasis, a gospel of Diamantis Baffa at Chronology of 1840 and also the ancient image of the Virgin of Dexiokratousas, based on a woodcut gold cathedra, which is the greatest treasure of the church. Finally, the church celebrates the first and second day of Easter, in a fun festival by locals.
