The Byzantine church of “Koimisis tis Theotokou” [Assumption of the Virgin Mary], built and painted with hagiographies in the late 13th century, is of particular historical and cultural interest. Located in Oxylithos of Euboea it is famous for its feast on the 15th of August. The church is cross-shaped and the narthex is housed with a groin vault with ribs. An Architectural Survey (architectural survey and pathology) was carried out for the Restoration of the monument.
