The historic monastery of Agia Paraskevi is built on the edge of the Vikos Gorge in Monodendri. The monastery was founded in 1412 by Michael Voevodas Therianos and the people of Vitsa, as stated on an inscription,during the reign of Carlo I Tocco. It was a property of the monastery of St Elias but was refounded as a nunnery in 1778. The panoramic view from the monastery is spectacular.
