Monastery of Makelaria
On the right bank of the river Selinounta and opposite the village Lapanagoi and at a distance of 30 km from the city of Kalavrita stands the monastery of Makellaria, which is dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary.
It was built by the general of Justinian, Belissarios in 532 AD, as can be seen from an inscription that survives to this day, in order to atone for the massacre during the famous "Stop of Nicaea" in Constantinople.
