Greek Orthodox Monastery at Hosius Loukas, Greece - 2009

Built in the 10th Century, Hosios Loukas is one of three surviving mid-Byzantine monasteries in Greece. Byzantine architecture is noted for their natural beauty and maintaining harmony with the surrounding landscape.

The passage of time has seeped deep into the stone. When I walked the quiet passages, I could feel the age press against me and seep into my own being.

Hosios Loukas remains an active monastery today.

Toto and Jack, a very nice trip to California.
Enjoy everything you encounter on your way. :-))) ♥

Toto

Sad that you are missing your trip to Crete and hope you back continues to heal. Jack and I off to California tomorrow for a couple of weeks.

Raaike

Toto, normally we would go to Crete next week, but we had to cancel the trip because of my open back. It only heals very slowly. :-)))

Toto

This is just a small corner of the monastery, Raaike. The rest of the complex is just as beautiful and well worth a visit if you're ever in this part of Greece.

Raaike

Very beautiful building, with all those arches. :-)))

Toto

I was (and am) in awe of their engineering ability. But the colors and textures are what stole my heart.

Beekay

I love the colors and textures in the stone work. It's so well built it doesn't seem possible it could be so old.

Toto

And still standing solid after a thousand years.

Plumpossum
