Agia Fotini Mantineia is a temple located opposite the archaeological site of Mantineia in Arcadia. It is an architecture that combines antiquities with elements of Byzantine influences. His dedication to Agia Fotini reflects Arcadia's relationship with light. It is known that the term Lycaeus means bright, and so does the name Lycaeus, which is the inhabitant of Arcadia.

The icon painting of the church follows the same spirit, with the hagiographers reminiscent of ancient Greek philosophers. There are also some cultural references to the sanctuaries of Isis that abound in Arcadia. The church was inaugurated in 1972 and the overall result is of great interest. In the surrounding area there is a hero to honor the fallen in wars, which is governed by the same logic as the temple. There is also the so-called Jacob's well, with a peristyle fountain of special construction.
