Mesa Vourgo churches opening

One of the biggest celebrations of the Greek Orthodox Church is on August 15th, the day of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. This year on Friday August 12th, from 7 pm to 10 pm, the wonderful Byzantine churches in Mesa Vourgo (the medieval district of Chora) will be open for visitors. The churches, which are still privately owned, will be lit by candles and it’s a great opportunity to see the beautiful frescoes and icons in this special setting.
