The town of Feres, formerly the Byzantine Vira is a settlement created by forced emigration of all the residents of the neighbouring villages situated around the monastery: the Abbey of Vira. The monastery was founded in 1152 by Sebastocrator, Isaac Comnenus, the third son of the Emperor Alexios I Comnenos. The abbey’s throne [i.e., the catholicos] is dedicated to the Virgin Cosmosoteira. The abbey is an excellent example of Byzantine architecture with its cruciform shape with a dome.
