AMALIADA (Town) ILIA

Monastery of Frangavilla

  On the outskirts of Amalias is the Byzantine Monastery of Frangavilla, now the orphanage of the municipality of Elis. The Katholikon, a Middle Byzantine building, is one of the most important churches of Eleia. It is a four-columned inscribed cruciform church with a dome.
   Later additions and repairs have altered its exterior appearance and it now gives the impression of being massive and unarticulated. Preserved on the interior are important wall paintings. The earliest are probably contemporary with the erection of the building and the later ones are datable to the 17th century.
