Arachova - Saint George church Saint George church
If you are in the centre of Arachova and you look up you will see the church of St George standing on the highest point of the village. There are many hand scripts that prove the church was already built in 1676, so its actual construction happened sometime earlier. There are 264 steps that lead you to the yard of the church, a place where many parts of the battle of 1826 took place. In fact, on the walls of the church you can still see bullet holes from the days of the battle. On the inside you can see well made frescoes of saints, an impressive wooden temple and Byzantine magnificence.
