Church of the Virgin Comforter Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The blend of architectural styles in the great church of the Virgin Comforter, built in 1290, was inspired by the churches in Constantinople. It is original in several ways. The base is shaped on an octagonal plan, while the stages are in the shape of a cross. Note the remarkable central dome raised on three stages of corbelled (or projecting) columns, the last two connected to the pillars with horizontal beams.
