Church of Archangels in Amari
(1 Vote)

In the cemetery of the village of Nefs Amari in the province of Amari there is the small single-nave arched temple of the Archangels (Taxiarches). The temple is dated to the Venetian occupation and above the entrance, on the exterior wall, there is a cross-shape series of round ceramics (pinakia) preserved.

Inside, the temple is very austere and preserves traces of frescoes, while others may found under the plaster. The wood-carved iconostasis also is impressive.
