The new magnificent Byzantine church was founded in 1908 by King George I (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_I_of_Greece ) and inaugurated in 1974 by Patras’ Metropolitan Bishop Nikodimos.

It is the largest and most artistic church in the Balkans and one of the largest across Europe. The supervision of the construction works was initially undertaken by architect Anastasioa Metaxas (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anastasios_Metaxas ) , and after his death (1937) by architect Georgios Nomikos. The Church’s central dome is 46m high and supports a five meter high gold-plated cross and twelve smaller ones, symbolising Jesus and his twelve disciples respectively. The church’s capacity is 5.500 persons.
