Monastery of Vlaherna – Parga

This monastery once lay in ruins but has been renovated and now serves as one of Parga’s emblems. Its most noteworthy features include a 15 meter tall bell tower with its nine bells. It was built in the Ionian style, and people claim they can be heard within a twelve mile radius when ringing. The foundation date is unknown, though some people claim it was first built sometime within the 14th century. The church holds a celebration in which it honours the Virgin Mary and the founding of the church every 2nd of July.
