The ecclesiastic architecture borrows Byzantine elements and techniques with wooden ceilings and intricate construction or in a more folk building, built according to specifications of Pilion. Some churches are decorated with ceramic tiles brought by the sailors from Asia Minor or from Italy or another, mostly European, countries.

P. Lazaridis mentions about the architecture of the church of the Monastery of Saint Charalambos:

"From eastern side raised by 3.10 meters the vaulted structure space of the Sanctuary, width 5.70 meters. The three niches is not erased externally. Is a typical example of the development of ecclesiastical architecture on the island during the Turkish domination".
