When visiting Greece, one can’t help notice the plethora of Greek Orthodox churches. You will find churches in every neighborhood, village, and even in isolated areas in the countryside. From grand Byzantine architecture with ornate doors to simple stone and white-washed buildings with simple doors, the wide variety of unique churches exemplifies the importance of the Orthodox religion in Greek culture.
Please enjoy a few of my favorite Greek churches I’ve encountered in my travels in Greece.

I love the simplicity of both churches and doors.
Thank you, Janet.
I really like the small simple, almost humble buildings that are just so easy to admire. Wonderful collection this week 🙂
Many thanks, Norm. I like the humble places of worship too.
There is a beauty in simplicity. Often, if you look close you can see unique features, like old locks and pull rings and flaking paint or weathered wood. Love your post!
Thank you, Debi.
Interesting! Thank you
I haven’t been to Greece yet but these images are how I imagined it to be. The first church looks like it has been hewn out of the rock face. Some dedication.
Greece has so much history and interesting places to see. We’ve been to services at the church carved into the hillside. It’s small but manages to fit a lot of the local church community. Very cozy inside. I hope you get a chance to visit Greece.
Thanks for that. I travel by motorbike. My next big trip will be in May / June. I’ll take the ferry from Ireland to Cherbourg and ride through France, Germany, Italy (alps), Slovenia and Austria. Enjoy your travels and stay safe!
Wow. Sounds like a fabulous trip! Enjoy.
Thanks, I will.
