In a unique lush landscape, at the foot of the hill of Filopappou and near the monument of Filopappou, towards the neck of the hill of Nymphs (Asteroscopio), is the holy church of Agios Dimitrios Loubardiaris.
It is a vaulted single-aisled basilica of the years of the Turkish occupation (others of the 9th century), which has two blind arches in the long (north and south) walls and two other transverse reinforcements (one at the T. Step and one at the exit), which hold the cylindrical roof, which is tiled. It was later extended to the west.
In 1955 the church was restored and preserved by the architect Pikionis, who however decorated the outer walls of the church with geometric designs, made of ceramics and pieces of marble. Then, after removing coatings with newer frescoes, other older post-Byzantine frescoes (1735) were uncovered, but all of them are worn or vandalized (mining of saints’ eyes). In 1987-1992 they were cleaned and preserved with solutions of special liquids.
