In the Municipality of Amyntaio, between Lake Vegoritida and Lake Petra, is the Monastery of Agios Panteleimonos and his mother Agia Evvoulis. It is said that on the beach of the village of Agios Panteleimon there was an old monastery which, with the increase in the level of Lake Vegoritida, was submerged. The current monastery, although built in another place, is a continuation of the old one. The reconstituted Coinovian Monastery was founded by the Metropolitan Mr. Theoklitos in 2004 and is subordinate to the Metropolis of Florini, Prespa and Eordaea. The monastic complex includes a large church dedicated to Agios Georgios, an old church of Agios Georgios (mid-18th century), mansion, guesthouses, cells for the nuns and a large courtyard. In the area there is also a small workshop for the preparation of traditional pasta and a shop selling local products.
