Monuments of Religious Significance

From the years of the Byzantine Empire (330-1453 A.D.), Greek land has been indissolubly linked to the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church, which played a significant role during the Turkish Occupation Period in maintaining the language and identity of the Greeks, while the clergy played an active role during the Greek War of Independence (1821-1830) in throwing off Ottoman yoke and creating the New Hellenic State.  The plethora of churches and monasteries constitute actual architectural monuments, while the atmosphere they encompass gives the visitor a sense of devoutness.
