Agios Nikolaos Church in Kyriakoselia
The Byzantine church of Agios Nikolaos is considered by some people to be one of the most beautiful churches in Crete and has many lovely and well-preserved wall paintings with a strong emphasis on shades of blue. The church is a fine example of Byzantine architecture on the island. It is of cruciform architecture, but its nave (west-east) is much larger and wider than the transept (north-south), so that the church inside is almost rectangular. The church has blind arches on each side. The windows are decorated with semicircles of brick. The side windows have a column with a column capital which creates two openings to its right and left for the light. The church has an exceptional elongated drum supported at the intersection. The dome has a roof of tiles, and it has long, narrow windows very beautifully decorated with bricks. In the front of the church there is a very large narthex of a much more recent construction. The church is presently undergoing renovation.
The key for the church is in the coffee shop at Samonas. The custodian will accompany you to the church.
