Holy Monastery of the Holy Cross at Doliana
Hidden in the woods and embraced by the untouched nature of Aspropotamos, the Holy Monastery of the Holy Cross at Doliana of Krania is an exceptional post-Byzantine monument. Its imposing architectural figure is attributed to its loneliness and its predominant material, which is stone. Here, there is nothing but man and nature. The atmosphere within the temple is strengthened by faith, simply bowing down to this unique temple in the mountain area of Trikala, without any illustrations. It seems that the simplicity of the temple is protected by 12 domes, which surround and perpetuate its wonderful esthetics, but remain “hidden”, like invisible guardian angels of the historicity of this church.
