This is an interesting church located in the old town of Nafplio. There was a service going on when I visited and so I thought it inappropriate to go inside and have a look around. Looks nice from the outside with the castle in the...More

Accidentally stumbled upon this church that's so rich in history! Hard to miss while strolling in Nafplio. Once you enter, all you get to see is the grandeur of this 16th century church. Lovely paintings and motifs. best to see in daylight.

As is the case of several buildings in Nafplio, the church has a chequered history. Built by the Venetians at the start of the 16th century, it was turned into a mosque by the Turks in 1540 and, after the war of independence, returned to...More

As with all Greek churches it is fairly plain on the outside but you step through the doors and it's like a different world. This church is incredible inside. A must stop

We couldn't see anything of the church because there are some renovations going around. The place in front of the church is nice to see.

This definitely a place to take a look at while in town. Beautiful paintings in this Orthodox church. This was a nice place to visit while roaming the streets!

I'm glad I ducked in here for a brief reflection. Really beautiful church, converted from a mosque. It's not obvious that you're allowed in, but you are - just approach the unmarked doors. Remember to be courteous and cover your shoulders.
