Saint Nikolaos Megalomatis

4.2 km from city center of Argassi

The Byzantine church of Saint Nikolaos Megalomatis (the Large-Eyed) or Stratilatis (the Commander) is situated on the east side of Mt Skopos, southeast of the city of Zakynthos, on the right of the earthen road that ascends to the monastery of Panagia Skopiotissa (Holy Mother of Skopos), and forms part of a lying in ruins later monastery complex dated to the 18th century (fig. 1).
