Church of Agioi Anargyroi

At the district of Panagia, at Tsaritsani, is the beautiful church of Agioi Anargyroi, one of the oldest ecclesiastical monuments of the area of Elassona. 

It dates from the 17th century, possibly in its first decades, and for many years it was used as a metropolitan church, because it was near the building that was used as a residence of the metropolitan. The church is simple, aisleless with an elevated narthex. It has a hipped roof covered with tiles, and its walls are built with stones. On its northern side a chapel is dedicated to Agios Charalambos, which is located, like the narthex, on a higher level and is connected to the church through a small stone flight of stairs.

At its interior the church and the chapel are decorated with icons, which according to a surviving inscription were made in 1761, by the local priest Ioannis. The church a wooden, decorated roof, while impressive is the gold-plated screen, with the exceptional despotic icons and miniatures, a remarkable example of the first stages of ecclesiastical wood carving in Thessaly. A wooden-carved screen survives at the chapel, which was erected at a later date, more advanced than the one of the church, with a richer and more intense relief. At a prominent location inside the church, placed on a shrine is the miraculous icon of Agioi Anargyroi, silver-plated in 1797, made by silversmiths from Kalarites.

The church celebrates on the 1st of November.
