Fodele - Byzantine Church of Panagia

Near the museum of El Greco in Fodele is the 14th century Byzantine church of Panagia (Holy Mother) with beautiful murals. It is built on the site of an older, 8th century church, of which only a few architectural traces can still be seen. It is said that this church inspired El Greco to express his feelings with religious themes and sacred items.
