Churches Around Loutro and Anopolis Villages

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of Byzantine churches and chapels on Crete.

Some are over a thousand years old and many still house beautiful frescoes.

Especially, the churches and shrines of Loutro and Anopolis define their landscape, creating a very specific and complex network of buildings which, in turn, is a significant part of how local people define who they are.

These buildings incorporate remembrance as active memorialising, as part of enriching present day existence.
