The murals of the Annunciation Cathedral were done by the famous painter Spyros Papaloukas. Due to the murals, which were completed within seven years (1927-1932), the Cathedral is considered one of the most important artworks of the region.

In order to paint the murals, Papaloukas used a method called ‘anthivolo’. He would first outline a sketch of the painting with charcoal on a piece of paper of a scale 1/1. Then he would punch holes in the outline and place the punctured paper (‘anthivolo’) on the wall. He would then dust charcoal dust over the paper and the image would transfer on the wall. Papaloukas kept all his sketches and ‘anthivola’ in perfect condition andthey are all exhibited in the Municipal Gallery today.
