Directly above the road junction to the mountain village of Vourliotes rises a small hill with a snow-white church on top. If you have a moment, be sure to go for a short walk and enjoy the beautiful view from the top, including the famous beach of Tsambou

Road to the church

You can't miss the way to the church, it's partially renovated and the stones and stairs are painted white. From the beginning it leads through a pine grove. It is only less than 200 meters from the road to the church and about 20 meters of elevation gain

Inland views of Samos

From the church there is a really beautiful view of the interior of Samos. The village of Vourliotes itself lies below the top of the mountain on the horizon and is led by a road with thirteen curves.

Interior of the church of Profitis Ilias

The church was not locked, so I could see its austere but well-kept interior. A walk to the church was definitely worth it
