|Agios Giorgos Tou Pigadiou church: silver icon of Agios Giorgos (Saint George).
|There are at least five churches and chapels dedicated to Agios Giorgos (Saint George) on Kastellorizo, for example Agios Georgos tou Horafiou in the Horafia district, not to mention the chapel on the islet of Agios Georgios off the coast of Mandraki harbour (see photos of Mandraki on gallery pages 223 and 224).
Unfortunately, the light in the church and the reflections from the surface of the silver relief made it impossible to get a decent photo of this icon. Better luck next time. You can see photos of painted icons of Agios Giorgos, and further information about the island's favourite saint on gallery pages 97 and 200.
