Chora Church is one of the most exquisite monuments during the Palaelogos Dynasty. It was in 4th century when the first church was built in the site although the structure that stands now was built in 11th century while its adornments and embellishments were finished only in the 14th century. Its outside appearance may look plain albeit imposing, but once you get inside, you’ll be welcomed by marble covered walls and magnificent mosaics. The mosaics are elaborate depictions of significant religious events such as the Nativity, the Massacre of the Innocents ordered by King Herod and the Death of the Virgin Mary.C
