I Found A 100+ Year Old Tree Growing Inside A Church In Greece

This amazing church is located at Samarina, Greece, built in 1812. It is devoted to Virgin Mary and every year on the 15th of August a great celebration takes place in the village gathering visitors from all over the country.

At some point a small pine tree grew inside the church’s temple and now it comes magnificently out of the roof! The tree is over 100 years old.

Samarina is a mountainous village of the Grevena district, one of the highest villages of Europe, built at around 1600m (5250ft) altitude. It is also known as the largest village in Greece and every summer it is full of locals and visitors. Its surroundings and landscapes are perfect for fans of mountains, forests and natural beauties.

Google maps coordinates for Samarina: 40.1045001,21.013706.

Again in Greece, there is another church, more popular than this, where trees grow from and around the roof. The village is called Vastas and it's in Peloponnese peninsula. 95349916-5...df03b6.jpg 95349916-5994bc5df03b6.jpg
