Soumela, Greece: Some mosaic highlights of a holy place


I will say little on Soumela and the place as I have been very lazy yet I have all the good reasons for not having the time to read and find out about the history but I know that it is one of the most famous destinations of pilgrimage in Greece dedicated to the Mother of God, Panagia. I am posting some pictures that I took of the interior and exterior of the church that I found most intriguing, sometimes unusually extraordinary and always highly expressive. I love the gold soothing glittering images from the interior which was very difficult to photograph....Hope you like it.

ps: All pictures taken by myself. Please do not distribute or publish without my consent. Thank you.
