According to the website of the island of Naxos, the church is open daily from 11:00 clock until 17:00 clock. When we visited an old woman had opened the church and paid attention to the visitors. Photographing in the interior was forbidden. Just as the Church of outer looks one must also imagine them inside, plain, simple and with Bruchstein Auern and partially with remains of mural paintings on plaster walls.
