We couldn't see anything of the church because there are some renovations going around. The place in front of the church is nice to see.

I'm glad I ducked in here for a brief reflection. Really beautiful church, converted from a mosque. It's not obvious that you're allowed in, but you are - just approach the unmarked doors. Remember to be courteous and cover your shoulders.

Take a couple minutes to check out the inside. I have several Greek friends named George, so I had to light a few candles for their benefit. The square where this church is located is serene and typical of small towns. It's nothing special, but...More
