Greece - Crete, Eleftherna: Sotiras Christos Church

Greece - Crete, Eleftherna: Sotiras Christos Church
Sotiras Christos Church (Our Saviour Christ) is a Byzantine church dating back to the 10th century. The church was built with materials from an earlier basilica of the 6th century, which was located on the same site and most probably the seat of the bishop of Eleftherna. Next to the church is a small cemetery.
Sotiras Christos Church has a cruciform architecture with a freely shaped cross and a cupola. On the top of the dome is a wonderful fresco of Jesus from the 12th century.
