The Castle City of Mystras / The temple of Peribleptos:
The temple of Peribleptos devoted to the Holy Virgin was built in the 14th century. It was founded by the first Despotes of Mystras, Manuel Katakouzenos and his wife Isabella de Lusignan.
The frescoes were executed in the third quarter of the 14th century and they are the work of four painters. These frescoes are also regarded as the most important group of the post-Byzantine period, since similar groups have not been found, or survived, in the capital of Byzantium, Constantinople (Istanbul). The artistry and unity of the representations are of high artistic value.
It should be noted that the churches of Mystra are still in function as places of religious worship, so please be respectful when inside. It should go without saying that flash photography is absolutely prohibited.
