It was built at the end of the 19th century, between the years 1888 – 1890, on the foundations of an older church. After a strong earthquake in 1953, part of the church was destroyed. In 1956 the church was rebuilt and expanded.
The church of Zoodochou Pigi is of Byzantine style and ends in a polygonal arch on the outside and a semicircular inside. The imposing wood-carved iconostasis that adorns the interior of the church was made in 1908. The old icon of the Most Holy Theotokos is considered of great cultural and religious importance. It celebrates every Friday after Orthodox Easter.
