Things to do - general

The Monastery of the Nativity of the Theotokos in Ardenica or simply Ardenica Monastery (Manastiri Lindja e Hyjlindëses Mari) is an Eastern Orthodox monastery, distant ten kilometers north of Fier, Albania, along the national road that links Fier to Lushnjë. Built by Byzantine Emperor, Andronikos II Palaiologos in 1282 after the victory against the Angevins in the Siege of Berat, the monastery is famous as the place where, in 1451, was celebrated the marriage of Skanderbeg, the national hero of Albania, with Andronika Arianiti. The Byzantine Emperor, Andronikos II Palaiologos started building the monastery in 1282 but the scholars claim that the chapel of Saint Trinity was already there, erected centuries before. A pagan temple, dedicated to Artemis had existed on the site before the chapel, and it is thought that the name of Ardenica stems from Artemis
