Very intriguing, I presume the chapel is still in use if the icons are still there. I wonder why the curtains over the icons??? they are so beautiful they shouldn't be covered.

@Maxine: the curtains are traditional and show respect for the saint in the icon, greetings from Athens

A real pious mood here, well done!
P.S.: You are right about Asia, I'll visit Turkey, mostly along the coast, to see the ruins of Greek and Roman cities.
