The whole city of Arta with its surroundings is full of valuable Byzantine churches and Parigoritissa, with its five domes, is the highlight.

The best Byzantine monument we have in our area, this ancient church attracts lots of visitors from all over the world. It is located in the centre of modern Arta and it is worth visiting.

Massive church in Arta. It’s square shape and sheer height makes for a most unusual architectural style. (Note: at the time of my visit in October 2018, a portion of the exterior was encased with scaffolding).
Not much inside, but the exposed wood beams, heavy stone and voluminous feel make for an interesting visit. A small entry fee applies.

Important monument to visit in the city of Arta of the late Byzantine period. Restored with care and taste. Arta is a hidden gem loaded with 2 millennia of history.

We wouldn’t have missed this ‘museum’ - it’s a site of great historic importance. The entrance fee was modest, quite appropriate for the size of the building. It was fascinating. There was parking around the area, but that may be more difficult on ‘work days’

How this place has not fallen down is a miracle and a tribute to the architect and the money spent building it in the 13th century. A unique church. Unmistakable.

This is a beautiful very old church. The paintings and outside are worth a visit. There is a small fee to visit but worth it. The lady selling tickets was very informative. It is sad to see the disrepair of this gem. I hope it can be saved and restored to its glory.

This church is really unique. A must see.... It's in Arta downtown, with a special entrance for the disabled...

The entrance fee is still €2 (reduced €1 for seniors over 65 y.o.).
It is possible to take photos without flash going around several rooms of the church. The most impressive one of course is the main nave with dozens of marble columns that seem to be suspended one over the other, and that culminate into a marvelously adorned cupola.
A little tip: from the Bridge I'd recommend to take the car till the center of Arta. Like this you spare the 15-20 min walk through the random Arta neighborhoods.

Found it slightly dear to enter the church however the architecture and paintings are absolutely mesmerizing. The church was founded in ca. 1290 by the Despot of Epirus, Nikephoros I Komnenos Doukas (r. 1268–1297), and his second wife Anna Kantakouzene. The church eventually became bankrupt, and was turned into a dependency (metochion) of the Monastery of Kato Panagia. In 1578, it is attested as a female convent.
