Fodor's Expert Review Monastery of Stratigopoulos

Ioannina Religious Building/Site/Shrine

The 11th-century Stratigopoulos is set on a grassy knoll at the other side of the village from Agios Nikolaos ton Filanthropinon (signs point the way). Its 16th-century frescoes, influenced by the Cretan School iconographic style, include an Adoration of the Magi, a fantastic Apocalypse over the door, and a Nativity (note the angel reprimanding Joseph). The spry caretaker will let you in; if she doesn't see you immediately, hang around conspicuously for a few minutes.
