Google
 

The Monastery (Church) of Panagia in Paramythia has a cupola which protects the cross, and is covered by ceramic ornaments. It was built in 14th century.

There were made some additions to the initial temple, the latest being the four-sided bell tower. The church was built to honor the memory of Panagia. Paramythia took its name from the temple (in ancient Greek means comforter). The church represents a symbol to all over the world Paramythians. The church had mosaics which were covered, for protection, during Turkish domination and the 2nd world war. In front of the yard gate are 2 springs and cells with private entrances. A lot of suffering people came asking for help and comfort (wherefrom the name Panagia the comforter). Till 1960 was Metropolitan Church.
