Apollonia - Fier Albania
The archaeological site of Apollonia is located in central-western part of Albania, about 10 km west of Fier. Apollonia was founded in 558 BC by settlers from Corfu and Corinth.
The ancient site of Apollonia was an important port along the route between Rome and Byzantium. Emperor Octavian Augustus studied philosophy there, and later Aristotle mentioned the town in his book. According to the estimations, during its glorious period, about 60,000 inhabitants lived in the town, which was surrounded by a 4 km long wall.
Among the most interesting monuments of the site are the Bouleterion (city council), the library, the triumphal arch, the temple of Artemis and the Odeon.
In the 3rd -4th centuries A.D. Apollonia suffered serious destruction from several earthquakes and the town went into a rapid decline. The ruins of Appolonia serve as an open Archaeological Museum, now.
Next to The archaeological site the Monastery and Church of Saint Mary can be found. The monastery complex was built in the 13th century and one of the best examples of Byzantine architecture in Albania. The monastery houses the Apollonia Museum but at the time of writing the building is under renovation.
The Apollonia Monastery and Church, Albania
The medieval Monastery of St. Mary at Apollonia is composed of a church and refectory that was very interesting because the builders used decorative blocks and other materials from the ruins of Apollonia. A person could probably stand for hours scanning the outside to pick out different pieces.
One stone block had Arabic writing. Stone heads of lions. Another, figures of people. Quite unique. The frescoes were in poor shape and almost everything within the church has been rebuilt. Done with sightseeing, it was time for lunch al fresco in the Apollonia Archaeological Park. Yum, yum, yum...

Monastery Ardenice, Albania Europe
Scholars claim that the Byzantine Emperor, Andronikos II Palaiologos started building the monastery in 1282 after the victory against the Angevins in the Siege of Berat. 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. The monastery site lies approximately 1 km from the Via Egnatia (a major 2nd century Roman road). On April 21, 1451 in this monastery was celebrated the marriage of George Kastrioti with Andronika Arianiti. The archbishop of Kanina, Felix said the mess in the wedding in the presence of all the Albanian princes, members of the League of Lezhë and the ambassadors of the Kingdom of Naples, Republic of Venice, and Republic of Ragusa.
In 1743 me with the initiative of the Berat's archbishop, Methodius, who was originary of Bubullimë, Lushnjë District, western Albania, then Ottoman Empire, the monastery was renovated: the paitings from this period of the Zografi brothers pertain to this time.
Since 1780, in the Monastery existed a Greek school to prepare clerics. In 1817, the school became a high school, which had also a student house. From this school graduated the Bishop of Berat, Josif. During the Albanian National Awakening period the school became one of the places where also the Albanian Language was taught.
An important cleric of the monastery was Father Mark, who was the priest to find the bones of Saint Cosmas of Aetolia, thrown in the Seman by the Turkish chevaliers.
The monastery had an exceptional library of 32,000 volumes that got completely burned by a fire in 1932.
The monastery has a Byzantine-orthodox architecture, which lays in a surface of 2.500 meters square. It is composed of the Saint Mary Church, the chapel of the Saint Trinity, a mill, and a barn.

My 2014 BMW R1200GS ADV - Katharsis në Shqipëri 2014 - From Orikum to Ardenica / Albania
Some fine places to visit while riding along the Vlorë County, Albania.

Then - the Apollonia (Ancient Greek: Ἀπολλωνία κατ' Ἐπίδαμνον or Ἀπολλωνία πρὸς Ἐπιδάμνῳ, Epidamnon or Apollonia pros Epidamno) - an ancient Greek city in Illyria, located on the right bank of the Aous river (modern-day Vjosë).
Its ruins are situated in the Fier region, near the village of Pojan, in modern-day Albania.
Apollonia was founded in 588 BCE by Greek colonists from Corfu and Corinth, on a site initially occupied by Illyrian tribes and was perhaps the most important of the several classical towns known as Apollonia.
Apollonia flourished in the Roman period and was home to a renowned school of philosophy, but began to decline in the 3rd century AD when its harbor started silting up as a result of an earthquake. It was abandoned by the end of Late Antiquity.
Finally - The Monastery of the Nativity of the Theotokos in Ardenica or simply Ardenica Monastery (Albanian: Manastiri Lindja e Hyjlindëses Mari; Greek: Ιερά Μονή Γεννήσεως Θεοτόκου Αρδευούσης)
It is an Eastern Orthodox monastery, distant ten kilometers north of Fier, Albania, along the national road that links Fier to Lushnjë.

Kisha 300-vjeçare e Shën Mëhillit drejt rrënimit - Vizion Plus - News, Lajme
Kisha e Shën Mëhillit në fshatin Shalës të Kolonjës rrezikon të shkatërrohet krejtësisht. Pas dëmtimeve të pjesshme nëpër vite, ditët e fundit është shembur çatia dhe një pjesë e mureve të saj. Kisha është ndërtuar në shekullin e 17-të dhe është shpallur monument Kulture në vitin 1963, por që prej 23 vjetësh nuk është mirëmbajtur. Prifti i zonës, At Kristaq Tase thotë se drejtoria e Monumenteve të Kulturës nuk ka lejuar mbajtjen e meshave në kishat e zonës me pretekstin e ruajtjes nga dëmtimet, por në fakt nuk ka investuar aspak për të mos lejuar shembjen e tyre. Banorët e fshatit tregojnë se kisha e Shën Mëhillit ka ngjallur interes tek të huajt, por tashmë që çatia dhe një pjesë e mureve të saj janë shembur nuk kanë çfarë t'ju tregojnë turistëve. Rrethi i Kolonjës ka tre kisha që janë Monument Kulture, status që nuk ka frenuar shembjen në masën 80% të kishës Fjetja e Julincës në Barmash e shek të 14-të, si dhe shkatërrimin e kishës së Shën Mërisë në Cërckë. Nëpërmjet telefonit, drejtori i Monumenteve të Kulturës në Korçë,Vasillaq Kolevica ka konfirmuar se është në dijeni të gjendjes së kishave të Kolonjës, por sipas tij për shkak të mungesës së fondeve, kanë munguar edhe projektet për ruajtjen e tyre.
St. Michael's Church in the village of Colonia Shale threatens to collapse completely. After partial damage over the years, recently collapsed roof and part of its walls. The church was built in the 17th century and has been declared a monument of culture in 1963, but 23 years is not maintained. The local priest, Father Kristaq Tase says Monuments Directorate did not allow keeping the masses in the area churches under the pretext of preserving the damage, but in fact did not invest at all to prevent their collapse. Residents of the village show that the church of St Michael has aroused interest among foreigners, but now that the roof and part of its walls collapsed not tell you what tourists. Cologne district has three churches that are Monument of Culture, the status has not deterred the collapse of 80% of the Dormition church in Barmash Julincës of the 14th century, and the destruction of the church of St. Mary in Cerckë. Via telephone, Director of Cultural Monuments in Korce, Vasily Kolevica has confirmed that he is aware of the situation of the Cologne church, but its due to lack of funds, have also been maintaining their projects.
