About Antikyra

Overlooking a sparkling bay on the Gulf of Corinth, Antikyra is a small port town on the mountainous Desfina Peninsula. It has been inhabited since the Classical Greek period and was once an important centre for the growth of hellebores and a significant port in the ancient region of Phocis.

In the heart of Antikyra is the Church of Agios Nikolaos, a blue-and-white church that features a series of arched entrances and an illuminated bell tower. A short walk away are the beautifully preserved mosaics of Pentakliti Vasiliki, a ruined five-nave basilica believed to date from the proto-Orthodox Christian period.

Perched on a hill overlooking Antikyra is the Prophet Elias Church, which offers wonderful views across the Bay of Antikyra. Nestled at the base of the church is the ruined Temple of Athena and the Allotropia Museum. Ethnographic, folkloric and geographic exhibits are housed within its gallery spaces, alongside regional artwork.
