Church of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary in Gastouni
Description

The Church of Panagia Katholiki is a true jewel in the region of Gastouni. It is located on the edge of the town, surrounded by a lush green landscape and is one of the oldest Byzantine monuments in Elis. It is dedicated to the Dormition of the Virgin Mary and dates back to the second half of the 13th century. 

The church’s architecture is impressive and equally impressive are the frescoes that adorn its interior. 

The church is celebrated twice a year, on Easter Tuesday and on August 15, with hundreds of worshippers flocking to venerate the majestic portable icon of the Virgin Mary.
