The intense religious world of the people of Ioanian islands is reflected in the number of monasteries that flourished in Zakynthos. The founding of the monastery of Panagia Skopiotissa in Byzantine times highlighted Mt Skopos as the most important religious center of the island, while several other monasteries, such as Anafonitria, Agios Ioannis of Krimnon and Agios Ioannis Prodromos monasteries, were formed in the first post-Byzantine centuries.
