We stopped in a lovely small village. Lunch was a three course meal! I’m glad we took a packed lunch as it was too hot to eat so much food. We wandered through the village and found the church we would be visiting later. We found a spot and had our picnic in the shade of the Church.
The Church was stunning and our guide gave us a really interesting history lesson about the architecture and why the churches are covered with so many frescoes – to get away from their pagan roots they had frescoes painted rather than having statues made. At the bottom of some of the frescoes you can see Greek names. These are the names of the families who paid for them to be painted.
We then walked through the village to a local shop that sold some of their local honey and drinks.
