Greece - Crete, Spili

Greece - Crete, Spili
Unlike many other churches we visited in Greece and Crete this church (Saint Peter and Paul Church or Saint Raphael Church ??) is a quite modern one, being built in the early 1990’s in a tasteful way. The church is located just outside the village of Spili - at the seat of the bishop of the Diocese of Lambi, Sivritos and Sfakia. It is home of a theological seminary and most probably one will see many priests (in training) in and around this little town.

We were free to walk around and admire the arched entryways, marble-floor courtyard, nicely decorated church and numerous illustrations of religious motives.

It is interesting to see a newer construction. We were just remarking the other day about how few new church buildings we see when we visit Europe. Touring the older parts of cities when we travel no doubt accounts for some of that.
