About Churches & Monasteries in Ioannina

Ioannina has served as a bona fide melting pot of religion and culture over the past two millennia. Orthodox Christian and Jewish communities lived side by side before, during and after the nearly 500 years of Ottoman Rule. Evidence of the centuries of Muslim influence can be found in several areas of the region and this peaceful presence of churches, synagogues and mosques adds a distinct flavour of culture and history throughout the prefecture.
