The impressive church of St. Myron holds a conspicuous position at the west of the village named after it. The church was the seat of an Orthodox Diocese from the Early Byzantine era to the era of Venetian rule.

It was initially an Early Christian basilica that was converted in the 11th-12th century into a four-pillared cross-in-square domed church. The church contains the tomb of Saint Myron, as well as an icon of Saint Myron, possibly dating back to the 16th century, which is considered miraculous.

The scete where the Saint lived as a Monk, which has been converted into a chapel, can still be seen to the west, under the church.
