Listing Description

This dilapidated church is located behind

the port of Adamas, at the highest point of the village. It was built by Cretan refugees in 1870 and took its name from the church of the Assumption of the Virgin of Protaitissa (old metropolis of the island) and the adjacent church, Agios Charalambos. These two churches were located in the old capital of the island, Zefyria, from where the wood-carved iconostasis and the old icons of this majestic church were transferred.
The architecture of the church is a three-aisled vaulted roof with a dome and its dome is located on the semi-cylindrical dome of the middle aisle. In the courtyard of the temple you will admire the mosaic of Ioannis Kavroudakis, made of Malian pebbles, which represents an eagle flying to the east. Notice at the bottom, between the two dolphins, the emblem of the Adamas community.
In the Assumption of the Virgin or Agios Charalambos (the locals call it by its second name), you will see icons of Cretan-Byzantine art from the destroyed churches of Zefyria, the wood-carved iconostasis, as well as the precious icon of the Virgin Mary, which is covered with silver leaf.
