Church of Mikri Episkopi

Arcadia

Mikri Episkopi, Partira
(1 Vote)

The ruined village Mikri Episkopi (i.e. Small Diocese) is located near Partira and was the seat of the Diocese of Arcadia. As expected, the village hosted an imposing temple, which has now collapsed. Columns and walls testify the importance of the temple.

The church of the Diocese was cruciform with a dome and was dedicated to the Savior Christ. It bore frescoes, but today they have almost disappeared. Next to the temple of Savior Christ a church dedicated to the Virgin Mary (Panagia) was later added.
