The church of “Saint Aikaterini” (Hagia Aikaterini) is located in Plaka near the monument of Lysicrates. It dates back to the mid-11th century and was built on the ruins of an ancient sanctuary of Artemis. It is in the style of a simple four-column inscribed cruciform Byzantine church. During the Roman era there were bathing facilities in the western courtyard. On its side ancient columns and an architrave has been preserved. A Documentation and Restoration Study was carried out for the monument and underlying antiquities aimed at its preservation and promotion.
