The church of Prophetis Ilias

This small church is on the top of a hill, north of the Sacred Way and 2 km southeast of Daphni. It is a
vaulted basilika, initially 4x7.4 m, probably post-Byzantine. Some 10th-11th century sculpture may belong to an earlier building. The church was an annex of Daphni.
In the mid-19th century the church expanded to the west and a chapel was added to the south. D. Kampouroglou visited the church in 1881 and met the only resident of the area.
