Another successful church preservation on the island of Serifos, by the Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades. The holy church of Agios Eleftherios at Lempidi, in the capital of Serifos island, is considered a monument and archaeological site of Greece, by Ministerial Decision, already since 1972.

 The decision concerning the preservation by professional restorers of the Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades led to two preservation phases: that of the icons and later on that of the iconostasis of the church. In 2016 and until the end of 2017, the icons of the iconostasis of the church were gradually transferred to the preservation workshop of the Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades and were restored by qualified restorers. When the preservation of the icons was completed, the experts proceeded to the on-site restoration of the church, namely that of the iconostasis.

 The time needed for the implementation and the completion of the project by a restorer was four fortnightly on-site works.

 The project began on April 11, 2018, and was completed and delivered to the public on December 2, 2018, on time to welcome the faithful and the clergy during Christmas. The work of the Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades includes a significant number of important church restorations that still stand against the damage caused as time passed and by the weather conditions, in Tinos, Serifos, Naxos and many other islands of the Cyclades.
