For a change of colour, here is a picture of a church in the ruined city of Mystras Μυστράς which was the capital of the Byzantine Empire after the sacking of Constantinople in 1204. The ruins are located about 8kms from Sparta Σπάρτι, and are amazing. A whole medieval city on the side of a hill complete with roads, a palace, churches, monastaries, houses and a castle on the top. One interesting thing is that the English word, Mystery, comes from the name of this ancient town...
There's your history lesson for today! Don't say I never teach you anything.
