Church of Christ Pantocrator

The Church of Christ Pantocrator is an Orthodox church built in the 13th-14th century and is one of the most remarkable and best-preserved medieval churches in Nessebar. In the middle of the nave rise four slender columns that once carried a dome. The drum of the dome, richly decorated, has 8 arched windows. The narthex is relatively cramped, with a medieval tomb on its floor. Inside the walls, only traces of the original frescoes that once covered them are preserved.
