Welcome to The Terra Dome

Welcome to The Terra Dome

In Athens, Greece.

Looking up at the terra cotta tiled dome of Mikri Mitropoli, or Little Cathedral, built in the 12th century. The clear, bright blue Mediterranean sky makes a great backdrop for the colors and shapes of Athens, old and new.

Why is this called “Little Cathedral”? It’s a bit hard to tell from this picture because there’s nothing around it for scale, but it’s only 25 feet long by 40 feet wide.
