Photographer's Note

Paleochora is a small mountain covered with small churches and chapelles. There are about 20 of them.

Plaochora used to be the capital of the island, from the 9th century to 1826. It suffered destructions by Barbarossa in 1537, and by the Venetians in 1654, but was reconstructed each time. Now there are few inhabitants, although some of the churches are occupied. The oldest churches date back to the 13th century. Some of them have old frescoes and sculptures.

The church appears in the photo is called "Agios Spyridonas".

Have a nice weekend :)
