Η Ι.Μ. Υπαπαντής

Byzantium, during the 14th century, after centuries of decline was reduced to a mere shadow of the once-mighty East Roman Empire. The last Christian emperors of the East, now controlled only a tiny handful of territories of what once used to be a vast empire. Desperately struggling to contain the advancement of the Ottoman Turks in the East.

For many Christians of that period, the end of a thousand years old empire seemed inevitably near. Their last hope was to retreat in their faith, in the most mystical aspects of it: the monasticism. The monastery of Ypapanti was first established during this dark period, in the year 1367.

Fully constructed inside a large cavity of a rock, this monastery is very indicative of its kind, compared to the ones that are usually seen on the peaks of rocks. Ο καθηγούμενος της μονής της Θεοτόκου Δούπιανης, Νείλος, ιδρύει στα 1366/67 τη Μονή της Υπαπαντής, που σήμερα είναι ακατοίκητη και ανήκει στη Μονή του Μεγάλου Μετεώρου, όπως αναφέρεται σε μια από τις δύο κτητορικές επιγραφές. Ο νάρθηκας της μονής είναι μεταγενέστερος, αφού κτίζεται στα 1784 και αγιογραφείται από τους Καλαρρυτινούς ζωγράφους Δημήτριο Ζούκη και τον μαθητή του Γεώργιο.
