Good Friday at Agios Nikolaos Orfanos.
The small and externally simple church of asaint Nikolaos Orfanos is found near the eastern wall of the city.It was built during the 14th century and constructed the katholikon of a Byzantine monastery,of wich only few relics are preserved today.

Great view!
Relics and to preserve them as a part of restoration works are essential, appreciative about your government.
