Church of Saint Paul at Selouda
(3 votes)

Saint Paul is a very old Byzantine church that was built at the place Selouda. The church is on the spot where Saint Paul reportedly baptized people on his way to Rome. It is a very picturesque small church, built on the beach using stones from the beach itself. This is why it is not easy to see the church from far.

The church has cruciform architecture with an equidimensional cross and a dome over the centre and is in a superb natural setting. It was built around the tenth century by Saint John Xenos and the frescoes probably date from the thirteenth century.
