Simple Doors to Unique Churches in Greece

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.
