P12: Faneromeni Holy Church and Holy Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Kalentzi

The route continues onto Kalentzi and then to Elliniko which is the last pilgrimage stop before Ioannina, i.e. the final destination of this cultural and religious tour.

Kalentzi is quite a lively settlement and belongs to the municipality of Katsanochoria that historically were part of the municipality of Tzoumerka thanks to the Politsa Bridge in Ampelochori, located very close to the Raftanaioi settlement where we were earlier. In Kalentzi, we encounter the Faneromeni Holy Church (1787), the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (1820) and the Monastery of Saint Nicholas (1630) once again. We understand that this Parish Monastery is very old because of an inscription that reads “Renovated in 1620” on the church’s entrance. Here, we also observe wonderful examples of traditional architecture and of the settlement’s spatial organization.
