Church of the Annunciation

Situated on the eastern side of the castle, the Church of Evangelistria is diferent from most of its contemporary churches, and is distinguished for its larger proportions and for a more careful elaboration of its architectural elements. It is composed of the nave, a two story narthex and the portico. The single nave has two entrances, one on the northern side through the portico, and one on the western side, both of which lead to the narthex. The altar area is divided from the nave by a wooden iconostasis which has few original parts in its composition.

Church of Saint Mitri

Kisha e Shën Mitrit (St. Demetrius’ Church) doesn’t look like much, but it is interesting, nevertheless. What stands today here was rebuilt on the remains of an old temple in the XVI-XVII centuries; and the murals were painted in 1607. A porch was built later around the church, on three sides. Inside, the church only has a small naos and altar. The church was entirely built of limestone and clay.

The church can be found on Rrugica Shën Triadha, not far from Xhamia e Kuqe and Kisha e Shën Mitrit.
