The Church of Saint Andrew in Patra, Peloponnese: The Cathedral of Saint Andrew (Agios Andreas) is the protector saint of Patra. According to the tradition, Apostle Andrew, the first student of Jesus Christ, was crucified in this town, on a site near the port. In fact, a large church has been built on the exact spot where Apostle Andrew was crucified.
The Cathedral of Saint Andrew in Patra has the largest dome in the Balkans. It was established in 1974 and it has Byzantine architecture, with many arches and bell tower. Opposite this church, there is an older church, also dedicated to Saint Andrew, that was built in 1835 and was designed by the famous architect Lysandros Kaftatzoglou. Right next to it, there is a water spring and it is said that this is where Apostle Andrew left his last breath in 66 A.D.
