More Info

San Cosmo Albanese is a small Arbëreshë community in Calabria, it is part of the Eparchy of Lungro, and maintains the culture, language, customs and Byzantine rite, precious peculiarities inherited from its ancestors. In Albanian it is called Strighari, deriving from the name of a leader of the city of Stura in Albania.

The Baroque sanctuary of Santi Cosma e Damiano in Via Santuario, built on the remains of an ancient monastery, represents one of the artistic jewels of the Arbëreshë communities. In the church you can admire a series of interesting Byzantine frescoes by the Cretan painter Niko Gianakakis and mosaics from the Mellini art studio in Florence that symbolize the most significant aspects of divine intervention in the world and of the Greek-Byzantine liturgy.
The patronal feast begins on 18 September with the exhibition of Saints Cosma and Damiano and ends on 27 September with the divine liturgy presided over by the Bishop. On the second Sunday of November the feast is repeated according to the Byzantine calendar. The sanctuary can be visited every day from 8 to 19 and every Sunday at 10:30 the divine liturgy is celebrated.

The mother church of SS. Pietro e Paolo is located in the historic center in Via Papa Giovanni XXIII. Its origin dates back to the 15th century and was opened for worship as a parish church for the faithful of the Greek-Byzantine rite in 1600.
