This is a country church devoted to st. Nickolas. The icon covered with flowers at the entrance of a church usually depicts the saint in honor and thus the church is named after him. For the greek Orthodox faith st. Nickolas is the patron of sailors. If not all, the majority of beaches and harbors still have shrines to him
