picture by Keliotes – December 2012: the old situation
This week 140 tons of steel was removed from the interior of the Protaton church. In 2000 the iron beams were placed to support the renovation activities. All these years the fine fresco’s of Panselinos were almost invisible for visitors, but from this week they can be seen again! Not without reason some call this church the “Sistene chapel of the Orthodox world”!. Last Friday 22/2 the famous icon “Axion Esti” also returned to the church.
