Voskopoja had 24 churches with frescoes of the most beautiful present today, only 7 of them survive. Background Voskopoja, once a center of economic, cultural and art development, full of prosperity, recognized the pace of trade of the time with other important centers of Albania, the Balkans and beyond. Trade with the West and the East, as a crossroads where the cultures of the time met, gave comprehensive development to the city. Its founding is supposed to be around 1330, from a Vlach community, inhabiting even the Albanians, while the Church of St. Nights, built on a hill, was the oldest church (today rebuilt on the ruins of the burnished church ), around which the first houses were built. Church architecture, icon masters and frescoes such as David Selenica, Zografi from Korça, Konstantin Ieromonaku, an iconostasis master is still this fortune that has resisted time, wars, damage by man’s hand, as the unique witness of that civilization, are those that show its unrepeatable values.
