he reflection of the brilliance and civilization of Constantinople is obvious in the temple of Panagia the Kosmosoteira, in Feres, the catholic of the bright monastery that emperor Isaac Comnenus built at about 1152. The bold, folded dome of the temple, which seems to be standing on the air, is surrounded by four smaller domes.

n the interior, the wonderful wall paintings of the second half of the 12th century, go way further the strict art of the time. Among them, the four portraits of the members of the Comnenus imperial family.

The two aquaducts that are saved inside today’s burgh’s remind of the acme of the Byzantine and post-Byzantine town that developed around the monastery.
