Church of the Holy Apostles at Agios Mironas
(2 votes)

The Church of the Holy Apostles is located at village St Myron and is a single-nave vaulted church bearing frescoes with intense funeral subjects. It is the only church in which the frescoes were painted on cloth (canvas), later pasted on the walls of the temple.

This technique was used by Italian artists of the 16th century. Similarly in the frescoes have obvious western influences with strong dramatic elements. It is obvious that the wall paintings have been painted by an artist from West Europe, maybe Italian, with good knowledge of post-Byzantine art.
