Church of Panagia Asprovouniotissa

Built east of the village is the church of Panagia Asprovouniotissa, which used to be the main church of Pyla.

The church of Panagia Asprovouniotissa was constructed in the year 1200 and it was originally a monastery. In 1850, the church was reconstructed, while it was renovated in 1950 and in 2005. In particular, in 1950 the masonry was coated with cement mortar, while in 2005 the mortar was removed to reveal its original form. In the same year, the iconostasis of the church was also created. What is noteworthy is that old statues which were placed in idolatry temples of the village were used as construction materials which were attached to the masonry of the church. The present church is a basilica and it is 15 metres wide and 30 metres long.
