Church of Agioi Theodoroi


Location: Ancient Site   

The Church of Agioi Theodoroi in Mystras Peloponnese: The Church of Agioi Theodoroi is the oldest and largest chapel in Mystras. It is located in Kato Hora, the lowest part of Mystras Old Town. The church was constructed between 1290-1295 by the monks Daniel and Pahomios. Originally, it was the katholikon of a monastery and then it became a cemetery church.

The architecture of the church is different than the usual Byzantine architecture and ressembles to the Monastery of Osios Loukas in Distomo Boetia, but in a more developed form. The architecture gradually points to the top and the dome is pretty impressive. The interior of the church distinguishes for the impressive frescoes that date from the 13th century, such as the portraits of the Emperor Manuel Paleologos. In this church, there is also the tomb of the Despot of Peloponnese Theodore I.
