Church of Christ Savior’s Transfiguration

  • Church of Christ Savior’s TransfigurationΣ


The Church of Christ's Transfiguration is located in the center of Christianoupolis south of Kyparissia after the city of Filiatra. According to reports written, it seems that in the late 11th century, Christianoupoli became archbishop and after many changes over the centuries, ceased to be a diocese in 1833.

Speculated from the exist findings in the church it was built on the ruins of the ancient Greek temple of "Zeus the Savior," because Christianity as we know considered the ancient Greek temples idolatrous, destroyed them to build (or on the ruins erected) Christian temples.
