about the little church

On Crete you will see small churches in many places along the way. Iconostases; literally places for an icon.

Our plot was called for ages Dio Petres, two rocks. Therefore our iconostasis is dedicated to St. Peter (the rock).

An iconostasis can serve three purposes: a commemoration of the victim of an accident, a reference to a real church nearby, or a reminder to parents. The latter is the case with us. If you kneel down you can see the pictures of the parents of Jacques and Hans standing there next to icon of the apostle Peter. With a light. To keep the memory alive! Not for religious reasons. We like to take part in cultural and historical habits.
