It was built in the 17th century and it is situated eastern of the village, next to the cemetery. Its architecture is not very important. It is singled-aisled with arches and tiles on the roof. It is stone made and the external walls were painted white. The yard is very small and cemented. Its bell tower abuts on the ecclesiastic building and it is placed on the west side of the church.
The inside is decorated with an old wooden iconostasis and a wooden gallery. The Department of Antiquities has undertaken its restoration. There is an old icon of Saint George which is placed on the iconostasis. The chapel celebrates mass 2-3 times a year. The chapel of Agios Georgios of Lambroforos operates 2-3 times a year.
