Panayia Protothrone (First Enthroned Virgin Church)

Panayia Protothrone (First Enthroned Virgin Church) Review

You are now entering the heart of the lush Tragaia valley, where in spring the air is heavily scented with honeysuckle, roses, and lemon blossoms and many tiny Byzantine churches hide in the dense olive groves. In Chalki is one of the most important of these Byzantine churches: the white, red-roofed Panayia Protothrone. Restoration work has uncovered frescoes from the 6th through the 13th century, and the church has remained alive and functioning for 14 centuries. The oldest layers, in the apse, depict the Apostles.
