The Church Of Panagia Odigitria (The Guiding Blessed Virgin Mary), also known as The Church Of Panagia Katholiki, was built in the 12th century AD during the same time when a settlement was first established in the area. The church was built and funded by the villagers.

The church lies close to the Temple Of Aphrodite.

The church has received several restorations over the years, with the most recent being during 2011 & 2012 and was financed with funds donated by The European Regional Development Fund, as part of The Cross Border Cooperation Programme "Greece - Cyprus 2007 - 2013".
