Cafe
“It is close to the cottage, and has decent coffee and other breakfast delicacies. You can get bread and related goods, pies sandwiches and a large variety of ice creams. I usually get take away coffees and sandwiches for the beach. It is in my mind a morning place and has wifi.”

Church
“The Metropolitan church of Megali Panagia at Neapolis The metropolitan church, dedicated to the Dormition of the Theotokos (August 15), rises magnificent in the north corner of the central square of Neapolis. Its erection at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century lasted a long time due to the financial ­constraints of the period. It had been founded in the year 1889 by bishop Meletios Chlapoutakis, was mostly built by his successor, bishop Titos Zografides, and was completed by bishop Dionysios Maragoudakis who inaugurated it on ­September 27, 1927. The church belongs to the cross-in-square plan with a zenana and two tower-like belfries on its western side which flank a porch with a tribelon opening. Its lower section is particularly cared for, as for the greater part, it is built out of carved masonry from grey local marble as are the openings in their entirety and the voluminous pillars in its ­interior. The wood-carved altar screen as well as the iconography in the interior belongs to the period 1962 – 1965 when the church was renovated extensively because of ­damage. North of the metropolitan church, a small barrel-vaulted church of the All-Holy Virgin ‘Fermalina’ dated to the 19th century, has been built on top of the foundations of an older church. ”

Place of Worship
“Old monasteries abandoned The single-nave church of St. Onoufrios is located to the north of the village of Voulismeni on a plateau at the top of a small hill. It may have been the catholicon of a monastery –abandoned today already from the beginning of the 20th century– without any known reference to it in the sources. The one-storey buildings of the complex are arranged around the church in the shape of an L, to its north and west. Externally the south side of the church is plastically structured with three arches that have brick arcades and frames with dentil course which constitute revivals of architectural motifs of the middle Byzantine period. The iconographic programme had the established representations of the Gospel cycle, among which can be discerned Palm Sunday, the Resurrection of Lazarus and the Washing of the Feet of the disciples by Christ at the Last Supper, while on the north wall a compact and, relatively rare, ­cycle of St. Onoufrios is developed. In one of these scenes the saint is depicted in company with a lion in the desert as is mentioned in his Life. ”

“In english Liondas. Located in Neapoli opposite cafe Milo. Great ice creams and desserts, but the thing to absolutely try are the fried dough boulets with honey and cinammon. That is their specialty, and you can even accomodate a ball of ice cream in the plate. Those marvels are a traditional greek delicacy called "Loukoumades" . Finger licking good. Just diagonally opposite the Milo Cafe. Go there people. No need to reserve.”
