MOURI (Village) GEORGIOUPOLI
The Byzantine church of Agios Nikolaos has unusual architecture. Although it is a cruciform Byzantine style of architecture, its transept is higher than its nave. Usually, in most cruciform architecture churches the reverse is true, or both aisles are of the same height. The church contains frescoes; the most interesting is the unusually large painting of Agios Nikolaos.
