Church of Holy Trinity in Rhodes, Greece
Rhodes Churches & Monasteries - The Church of Holy Trinity in Rhodes, Greece, is a remarkable cross-shaped church with a cupola. The structure's northern arm is shorter and leads to an adjacent rib vault. Its captivating frescoes are thought to belong to the late 15th and early 16th centuries. Sadly, during the Ottoman occupation, this holy site was transformed into a mosque, known as Dolapli Mescit, which resulted in necessary modifications. The church also has an intriguing past, as recent excavations uncovered parts of an ancient Hellenistic road and four tombs. Tragically, the Holy Trinity Church suffered significant damage during air raids in World War II. However, after 1980, the Greek Archaeological Service carefully restored this sacred place.
