The Chapel of Saint Theodora of Vasta In Nafplio

The Venerable Martyr Theodora of Vasta is most well-known for the amazing chapel which stands in her honor in Vasta of Arkadia with 17 trees growing miraculously on its roof and a river flowing beneath it. However, there is another chapel dedicated to this same St. Theodora in Argos in the region of Makrovouni Leukakion which is about 3 km away from the city of Nafplio. This chapel was built on the exact spot where four years ago the owner of that particular field named Sotiris Tzinieris saw St. Theodora in a vision multiple times. In her honor he built this chapel with his own hands. Fr. Dionysios Tampakis celebrated the Great Vespers on September 10, 2010 for its feast on September 11th.
