Monastery of Panagia Kosmosoteira

In Feres, 29-km to the northeast of Alexandroupolis and next to the river Evros, is the Byzantine City Vera located. The city is closely related to the emperor Isaac Komnenos. In the years 1151- 1152 he built the Cosmosotera monastery and then he abounded the cosmic life. Nowadays only the central shrine is saved, which is one of the best samples of Komninian architecture, and parts from three of the six towers.
