Silent Sunday in Crete

The Oldest Byzantine Church in Crete

It definitely was a silent Sunday when we came across this deserted Byzantine church which we later found to be the oldest in Crete. Overgrown with grasses and weeds, it still has charm and I remember well the smell of the herbs underfoot as we explored the near-ruined building.

    1. Crete is one of my favourite islands as the Cretans are so different and quite unlike other Greeks. They have a fierdce independence, like the Sicilians, and I admire that. I think, being Irish, I feel a connection with this! Lovely Sunday weather and I shouldn’t be indoors but I planned to spend a day reading the papers and catching up on things. Then the computer called, but it’s back to the papers now!
