Monastery Genession Theotokou in Korona - Overview

   The Holy Monastery of Korona was built in a rather high place, 1.150m, between the communities Moschato and Mesenicola. It consists of the church and cells.
   The church, honoured to the "Birth of Virgin", is in the type of cross-in-square, enlarged into a trinconch by apses added to the cross arms (the type of Mount Athos), with narthex and parekklision in the West Side, honoured to Saint John Prodromos. The frescoes date to 1587and follow the Cretan style. The monastery was of great importance for the Agrapha area during the period of Turkish occupation.
   Part of frescoes have been conserved as well as the building itself (part of if).
