100 doors church
The 100 Doors Church (Ekatontapyliani) is 12 km (15 minutes by road) from Fyrogenis Palace. It is the largest, and one of the most well-preserved. early Christian monuments in Greece. According to tradition, the original church building which was built here was the work of the Emperor Constantine the Great. He built the church to fulfill the wish of his mother, Saint Helen. It is said that when Saint Helen was travelling to the Holy Land her ship encountered a great storm and was forced to flee to Paros. There Saint Helen prayed to the Virgin Mary, patron saint of Constantinople, and vowed to build a magnificent church dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary when she finished her journey. This was accomplished by her son, Constantine the Great, in the 4th century. At the time of Emperor Justinian (6th century) the church was renovated and modifications were made to the early Christian sections. At this point the old roof was removed, and a dome with arches was added. According to tradition, these renovations were made by a student of the architect who designed Hagia Sophia, and who was an even better architect than his teacher.
