Virgin Mary of Consolation

    Virgin Mary of Consolation is the most important and famous Byzantine temple in the prefecture of Arta. It was built in the 13th century by Nicephorus the 1st Komnenos Doukas, when the Despotate of Epirus was at its peak. The temple is dedicated to the Annunciation of the Virgin, while we find evidence that in the 16th century it was the Catholic female monastery.
    In the temple exists also the miraculous icon of Virgin Mary of Consolation. Specifically, it is placed on a wooden icon temple of the temple, and is the main icon of worship in that place. Virgin Mary is a pictorial version of the type of Eleousa. It combines elements of the type of the Virgin of the Passion, such as Christ\'s reverse tread and the restrained melancholy of the Virgin for the Passion of Christ.
