Artist's Description

This delicate miniature piece of late Byzantine architecture is of the 12th -13th century. It is built on a hill along the Phaneromeni Avenue and is the church of the medieval village Agrinou. The village and the church were destroyed by the Egyptian Mameluks, who invaded the island in 1426. The church was repaired in the 15th century. In the 18th-19th centuries, the church served as a monastery, but the annexed structures were demolished in the 20th century, thus restoring the original setting of the picturesque church.
