RIZOVOUNI (Village) PREVEZA
The monastery of Kastri, dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, is located on a rocky hill, close to the ruins of the ancient city of Vatia, south of the village Rizovouni.
It was built probably in 1095 and its frescoes were made in 1670, as Seraphim Vyzantios inform us.
According to an inscription over the west side door, the narthex of this church was built in 1695.
The monastery buildings (ruined after a bombardment by the Germans in 1944) include the church, the buildings of the cells of the monks and the reservoir.
