The Church of Saint Friday (Agia Paraskevi) is a cultural monument in Lukova and the basilica dates back to the 17th century. It is located in a forestry area between the olive groves on the slopes of the hill and faces towards the sea. The basilica has a dome shape and two entrances and six columns, overlaid by arches. Once there was a bell tower as well, which was donated by the King of Naples. Unfortunately the bell disappeared in 1967 during the ban on religion in the communist era.
Negligence has let nature take over so the church has long been in a very bad condition, but a recent renovation has saved the building from further damages.
How To Get To The Church Of Saint Friday
From Saranda you can reach Lukova by car by heading north via the coastal road SH8. There are also direct buses to Lukova but you can get any bus in the direction of Himara or Vlora as they all pass by Lukova. From the main road you have to walk down the hill via some small cobbled streets and the last 100 meters consists of a hiking path as the old church is located in the forest.
