Fodor's Expert Review Byzantine Fresco Chapel Museum

The Museum District, Rice University, and the Texas Medical Center Museum/Gallery

Frescoes from a 13th-century votive chapel have been preserved in this jewel in the Menil complex, located one block from the Rothko Chapel. The dome and apse were rescued from thieves and restored under a unique arrangement with the Greek Orthodox Church and the Republic of Cyprus.
