A must see if you are traveling to Patras. The boys enjoyed their visit. They were so entralled with the spiritual history. They received icons and holy oil while we were there.

Found loads of people hanging around outside, begging! A sign of the times! The church inside was huge and covered in many icons to St Andreas!

When travelling in this area of Greece do not hesitate to visit this church. Here you can pray to the relics of St. Andrew. Also you can see pieces of the cross on which he was crucified St. Andrew. The church is an architectural jewel. You have to be properly dressed.

Don't miss to visit this Orthodox Church. The largest in Balcan. You also must kneel before the holy head and the holy cross of Agios Andreas.

During their reign the Dukes of Burgundy adopted St. Andrew as... More
