Epirus Churches

Epirus churches

Information about the Churches in Epirus, in Greece but also information about churches and monasteries in many locations of the region: Epirus is recognized as an ideal destination for all kinds of tourism. The perfect sceneries coexist harmonically with the historical monasteries, churches and monuments that dot its beautiful areas. Epirus is a region that suffered greatly through the centuries showing its strong religious faith in times of oppression. It is no wonder that Virgin Mary is highly honored, being the protector of the area.

Starting from the beautiful area of Parga, numerous churches can be found but the one that is well worth a visit is the monastery of Panagia Vlacherna. Overlooking Valtos beach, the 12th century monastery offers a unique opportunity for relaxation.

The striking beauty of Zagoria villages is certainly worth a visit especially when it blends with the religious monuments which give away its rich history. The monasteries of Panagia Spiliotissa and Agia Paraskevi stand out for their architecture and offer amazing views to the gorge. Smaller churches spread in the village are Agios Minas and the church of Agios Vlassios.
