Discover Panagia Kera church

Next to the village of Kritsa in the south of Agios Nikolaos, this little church is a genuine little treasure of Byzantine art. Inside you will find marvellous frescoes dating from the 13th and 14th centuries. The religious scenes depicted in the frescoes display characteristic elements of Byzantine art but also from the Palaeolithic era. You can admire paintings of the Last Supper, the Festival of Herod and representations of St. Francis of Assisi, which you don't often see in the churches of Crete, revealing how a Catholic saint was adopted into Orthodox iconography.
