(ANSAmed) – BELGRADE, MARCH 9 – The Serbian monasteries in Kosovo were listed among the five most important holy sites of the Mediterranean along with Jerusalem, Mt. Athos, Mecca and Vatican.
Pecka Patrijarsija- Patriarchate Monastery
The decision on importance of the Serbian monasteries in Kosovo was rendered at an EU meeting in Brussels attended by European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso.
Barroso underlined the need for special protection of the Serbian holy places in Kosovo, adding the monasteries should be a source of inter-cultural dialogue, rather than conflict.
Upon completion of an analysis and an accompanying study, an international declaration will be adopted to proscribe the level of protection of the Serbian holy sites in Kosovo.


At least 8 monasteries have been destroyed during the Kosovo War by  Albanian barbarians.
