Byzantine churches

Agii Deka byzantine church

  The church of Agii Deka presents many similarities with the church of the Panagia Paliani, but it is not clear if it is of the first or the second Byzantine period. It is a three-aisled basilica and the aisles are separated from each other with five arches supported by three marble columns without bases. The bases of the columns, simply decorated, seem to have been used as column capitals. The floor is of white marble slabs enclosed in dark marble frames. The church has an old narthex also subdivided into three parts and the exterior walls of the church have blind arches.
