We visited on a Thursday during Covid-19 Although one bus was full of Greek folks, no tourists to be seen Read the legend and believe... Never have I witnessed anything like it before It is hidden away in the mountains, so, please use a Sat Nav or GPS as you can easily miss the turns... The rocks fall onto the road so he careful A MUST SEE #BLESSINGS

Although the road to get there is not for the faint of heart, this awe-inspiring site is worth it. Take some time to research its history and enjoy the peaceful energy of the place while you're there.

From the road Megalopolis towards Kalamata, a picturesque small road of approx 20km bring you to the place. Agia Theodora is a small stone church of 12th century with 17 big trees…grow on its roof! Strange enough there are no roots inside the church! To explain the miracle a research project launched in 1996 by the University of Patras. Summarising the findings the scientists wrote: “It was proved that the roots follow the gaps existing inside the side stonewall creating repulsion stresses between the stones and thus they reach the ground. This leads to the creation of a net of roots that reinforces the building from a static point of view opposing the roof load but also destroying the stonewalls. It was also proved that the south wall is almost intact while there seems to be a particular void in the north wall” Worth a visit since the feeling from the photos is far from the feeling you have soon you see the church

When traveling in Greece a while back, I had been told by a friend that I should visit this little hidden spot of a perpetual miracle. Our hotel was in Athens but we hired a driver for the day to take us to see the church of Agia Theadora in Megalopolis that has 24 full grown trees on top of this small church. The creek that flows beneath the church is part of the miracle and adds to this peacefull gem. Learning of the Saints' story and seeing these wonders first hand is nothing short of amazing.

A magnificent and unexplained miracle. Well worth a visit, and the Neromilos Taverna serves tasty and good value meals.
