A church with a difference
I have shown you Greek churches before, but this one is a little different. It's the church of Agia Foteini in Mantineia, in central Peloponnese.
Agia Foteini was built in the early 70's in a unique greco-byzantine style to match the Ancient Greek ruins in its vicinity. It's become very popular with locals and tourists alike, as it's so unusual.
Some call it the wonky church, others call it the Chinese church (due to its vague resemblance to a pagoda), but of course it's neither wonky, nor Chinese.
