TRIFYLLIANIKA ..and in the little square is agios jannis... [st. john church ]... . if you are on kythera in late august on the 28th , it has a lovely church service in the morning followed by a morning tea by all the church goers in the square outside the church and everybody is welcomed greek or tourists , ...if you visit the village at another time you may ask one of the locals to obtain the key so the church can be opened to maybe light a candle and view the hand painted frescoes on the walls ...
