View of the fresco of the Dormition of the Mother of God above the west entrance of the 14th century Church of the Resurrection of Christ in Berea/Verroia.  The fresco above the altar pictures Mary holding Jesus—a very common theme.

There are over 50 Byzantine Churches in Verria/Verroia.  In the Church of the Resurrection of Christ there are some very well preserved frescos by George Kaliergis, one of the great painters of the 14th century.
