UNESCO World Heritage site, the monastery of Hosios Loukas in Stiri central Greece, which was affected by the fires, has reopened to visitors on Tuesday.
The monastery was evacuated on Wednesday, August 23 as wildfires approached. The roof on one of the oldest edifices on the premises was burned.
On Tuesday, the father superior of the Greek Orthodox monastery announced the reopening of the monastery reassuring pilgrims and visitors all spaces are open to the public and cleaned of fire remains, except the burned section in the front, amna.gr reported.
The section that has been affected by the fires, is a building that housed the late superior Papa-Ioassaf. The roof was burned, however, the walls are in tact and the building is set to be restored, the father superior of the Greek Orthodox monastery explained.
Firefighters remain in the area, as Greece continues to battle the wildfires.
The site is one of the most important Byzantine monuments in the world and firefighters have been worked to save the monastery from total destruction.
Within the confines of this site lies a remarkable assortment of mosaics from the Macedonian Renaissance of Byzantium, making it one of the best-preserved repositories of its kind.
