1. History

During the Byzantine period, a stauropegic church dedicated to Saint Irene was built in the area, to house the body of the saint. On 5 March 1231, during the Frankish rule, the Latin archbishop of Patras, Antelm of Cluny, moved the relic to the Monastery of Hautecombe in Savoy. The relic was returned on 5 October 2002 and is housed in a new church dedicated to the saint, on the same site as the medieval church.
