Methoni – places worth to visit «Agios Vasilios»

1) Agios Vasilios. The little church dates back to the middle of X century AD and it is a beautiful Byzantine construction. According to ancient sources, the temple is an example of ancient cruciform architecture which belongs to the so-called transitional type. The latter indicates the combination of the church’s plan shaping a Christian cross with the three-isled domed basilica. In the interior of the church, the archaeologists have discovered only traces of wall-paintings, mainly in the area of the sanctuary. Unfortunately, intact Byzantine frescoes have not survived in the church to the present day.
