At the southwest edge of the castle of Koroni, visitors will find the stone-built temple of Panagia Eleistria, which celebrates the first Friday after Easter, the day when the Greeks honour Zoodochos Pigi, and on the 22nd of January, the anniversary of the discovery of the icon of Panagia (Madonna), according to religious tradition. The temple was constructed in 1900. Nowadays, the church of Panagia Eleistria constitutes an important religious centre where the religious ceremonies of the town of Koroni are mostly held. The temple is situated within a fascinating wood with a beautifully landscaped surrounding space.

The view from this spot is captivating. The visitor can see the open sea and the large beach of Zanga.
