The Church of St. Theodora (Ναός ναός της Αγίας Θεοδώρας) is an important Byzantine church in Arta. It was originally the katholikon of a monastery, where Theodora, the wife of Despot of Epirus Michael II Komnenos Doukas (1236-1271), was buried. It is a three-aisled basilica, which was built over the ruins of an older structure.
