Albania’s old Orthodox churches, forgotten and abandoned for many decades because of the religious persecution by the atheist state, are being restored by both the Albanian Orthodox Church and the Institute of Cultural Monuments in Albania.
The interest of Archbishop Anastasios of Tirana, Durrës and All Albania, in this direction is continuous, substantial and effective.
Although restoration work is difficult in many cases, experts point out that the restoration of the temples is still possible. If this happens, the Orthodox monuments will emerge and regain their full functionality, while they are expected to attract the attention of many pilgrims.
