The temple of Transfiguration of the Savior in Milia, that serves as the parish church, was built in the 13th century, but has undergone major interventions, modifications and additions during the Byzantine period. Traces of its first building phase are detected in the ceramic decoration of the facades.

The Church of the Transfiguration of Savior in Milia is full of wall paintings of the late post-Byzantine period. Only some parts of representations from the original wall painting from the 13th century are preserved in the sanctuary.

The rest part of the church of Transfiguration of Savior in Milia is estimated to have hagiographies in the 18th century. The characteristic bell tower in Mani was built in the early 19th century, and as noted by researchers, the influence of the architecture of the Ionian Islands is quite evident.
