  Paraportiani Church
by Phalaenopsis03

Considered to be the most famous church on the island, Paraportiani is actually a complex of five churches. Four of the churches were built on the ground to form the base, and the fifth was placed on top to form a central domed roof. Interesting stuff, huh?

Funny story, but originally, I insisted on deleting this only picture P.G. took of the church because I didn?t really care for it too much. Besides, we already had tons of pictures of churches. But now, after seeing the exact same picture on the web, I?ve come to realize its cultural and architectural significance. Thank goodness for P.G.?s sense.
