Although currently a Catholic church, this is considered a Byzantine masterpiece built in 920 AD, although the engraved cross-shaped pillar and semi-hexagonal arch date from the 12th century. Frankish elements were added in the 14the century, with murals from the different eras as well. The Byzantine icon of the Holy Mother is noteworthy, so is the stunning throne.
