Byzantine monuments in Stefani
Stefani is a place rich in Byzantine monuments that refer to the history of the evolution of Byzantine Christianity to the Peloponnese in the 10th century.
The examples of ecclesiastical architecture and hagiography in Stefani, Corinth, express the economic and social development of the region in the period mainly of Frankish rule and Ottoman rule. Specifically, they are preserved today and have been declared protected monuments due to their historical significance and value:
The catholic church of the Old Monastery of Pammegistos Taxiarchis Michael, a building of the 11th-12th century with frescoes by Theodosius Kakavas of 1565 AD.
The old parish church dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, a 14th century building with frescoes from 1694 AD.
The single-aisled vaulted street church of Agios Athanasios with frescoes of the 16th-17th century.
All three monuments retain great examples of hagiography that decorate their interiors.
