The Monastery of Panagia Faneromeni or Moni Faneromeni is the most important religious centre on the island of Lefkada. Situated in Frini, on the hilltop above Lefkas Town, this monastery offers a breathtaking view to the capital village, the northern side of the island and the opposite coasts of the mainland. History says the monastery was originally built in 1634 on the site of an ancient temple dedicated to Artemis, the goddess of hunting. Centuries ago students of Apostle Paul preached Christianity on the same site. Today the monastery also hosts an Ecclesiastical Museum with rare Byzantine icons, old manuscripts and gospels.
