Further up from these, there are 11 small icons of the life of Jesus and the Virgin Mary, and the crucifixion with the Virgin Mary and Ioanni Theologo to the right and the left. At the semicircle dome which is on top of the altar, is the descent and the Annunciation. The remains of seven saints are kept at the altar, one of which is Agia Paraskevi.
