    The patron saint of Kaparellio is Agios Panteleimon. The church is of Byzantine style and its construction dates back to the Frankish period (1204-1460). In 1904 work began on the church taking its current form at the expense of the church fund and donations from the faithful. The interior of the church is imposing with a multitude of chandeliers and hagiographies.

    Near the village there is a small river called "Oeroi" from the name of a nymph.
