Exploring this small, hidden gem is a must if you love art and history! The Church of the Holy Saviour in Chora (Kariye) is one of the most exquisite structures reflecting East Roman (Byzantine) art with unparalleled architecture, frescoes and mosaics. Considered as a masterpiece even in its own time, the decorative program of the Chora is a pivotal monument of the ‘proto-Renaissance’, comparable to the early 14th-century fresco program of Giotto at the Arena Chapel in Padua.
