Beautiful, Lawrence. Thanks for posting these.

Many years,

Interesting design. It looks like a dome with four half-domes.

Thank you for posting the photos. It is certainly a beautiful place. I find the classical Byzantine architecture quite compelling.

If you don't mind me asking, what is the seating capacity at Saint Spyridon?

Systratiotes

I'm going to take a guess and say the seating capacity is around 300-350.
