The so called Red Church is a monastery dependency church of the historic Rovelista Monastery. It is a small church witch typologically belongs to the rather rare for the area of Arta "Mount Athos Type" and that is because it carries three conchas, one on the east facade, one on the nothern facade and on on the southern facade. In the past the building was covered by a dome. Later on the dome collapsed and a wooden roof was constructed instead. Along with that an outer narthex was built on the west side of the building. The whole composition was misconducted and the monument lost its authenticity. Our study had as a goal to restore the monuments aesthetics and stractural abilities acording to the The Venice Charter for the Conservation and Restoration of Monuments and Sites.
