On the Road to Perachora
SCHINOS (ancient oenoe)
The Transfiguration As we head down towards the sea at Schinos, we come to the church of the Transfiguration, which over the course of the centuries has undergone frequent alterations and additions. In earlier times, it was a groin-vaulted building, but today it is a single-aisled structure with a vaulted roof. The ornamentation of the window in the semicircular sanctuary apse takes the form of a dog-toothed band of ceramics, which means that the earliest building phase can be dated back to the twelfth or thirteenth century. To the east are the foundations of a semicircular apse, which presumably belonged to an earlier and much larger church.
