Theotokou (Mother Mary) Church (Patsos)

The church is dedicated to the Nativity of Mother Mary . Although it is in ruins, its walls are still standing. It was built in two phases. The first one dates back to the 11th or 12th century and its extensive reconstruction to the 14th century. The church has many murals dating from the 14th century, several of which have been transported to St. Katherine’s Church in Herakleion; they are painted in an interesting style echoing of the Maceonian School.
