Tour Overview

Mesopotamian Monastery

The Mesopotamian Monastery

is located in the southern part of the Mesopotamian village of Saranda, near Finiq. This monastery is built on the ruins of a pagan temple. The Mesopotamian Church is dedicated to a saint, Saint Nicholas, who was very widespread and worshiped on both Adriatic coasts, the Morese and the South of Italy. The Church of Saint Nicholas is thought to have been built at the time by the Byzantine Emperor Constantine of Monaco IX in 1042-1054. The church has a special Byzantine style architecture. The monastery preserves the ruins of the surrounding walls and is controlled by seven rectangular towers.

The outer walls

are constructed of large limestone. Wall murals are of different shapes, including an eagle, two dragons and a lion on one side, and on the other there is a mythological animal whose head resembles that of a dog. The church has a large hall inside and two small. The mosaic of the hall represents an open-wings dragon. According to the researchers in 1510 the church was hit by a term that caused many damages. The Saint Nicholas Monastery in Mesopotam will be a relic highly valued in our cultural heritage but also as part of the Byzantine world architecture.
