Photographer's Note

Famous monastery of 'Panagia Proussiotissa' in prefecture of Evritania.
Information below is from www.windmillstravel.com

"It is one of the few monasteries saved in Evrytania. It consists of the church and one wing with cells. The church honoured to Mary (Panagia) Proussiotissa is in the cross - domed type and dates to 1754. In the West side of the church there is a crypt adjusted to be used as a parekklesion. The frescoes are dated to 1785. Frescoes of the 13th c. are also saved in the external west side of the crypt, while in the internal we can distinguish two phases, one of which dates to 1518. A remarkable wood - carved iconostasis, dated to 1810, decorates the crypt.

The monastery church (katholikon) has been restored and the frescoes have been conserved.

Just across the monastery, there is the historical building of the first Greek School to function during the Turkish Rule, started by Kosmas Aetolos, a priest who, because of his ideas, faced the death of a Martyr and is worshipped as a Saint.
