Church of Panagia Chaviara

Church of Panagia Chaviara

The Church of Panagia Chaviara was built at the end of the 14th originally as a singl-spaced temple. Later, after many interventions at the end of the 15th century and at the beginning of the 16th century the temple was converted into a three-aisled with a wooden roof basilica with a narthex, preserving only its original east wall.
The painting decoration of the temple is quite remarkable with notable murals of the 14th century (Virgin Mary, the Annunciation, the Ascension), the 15th century (depictions of the Doomsday) and the 16th century (the Candlemas, the Nativity, the Baptism, the Assumption of Mary, Christ in Chains etc.)
