The Monastery was worth the stairs, picture opportunities all around, but the best part of it all was being on our own... traveling the island on mopeds we had rented at the marina. That day was among the best of all our sailing days.

This site is certainly worth the hike up the steps. The Monastery is built high against the precipitous cliffs on the south side of the island, seemingly clinging to the cliffs. The view from up there is breathtaking. The Monastery is small but amazing. You will be offered a short tour, a drink and something sweet. Bring proper clothes (long... More

An amazing experience, capped by the traditional monastic hospitality of a complimentary drink and sweet after the strenuous climb to the top!

Worth the stairs. The best window with a view in Greece! Breathtaking view of the sea. Kind monk treating you raki and water and telling the story of the monastery. Don't miss it

Not easy to get to the monastery in the heat but the result is worth it: quiet, plastered to the cliff with a great view

When in Amorgos do not miss a visit to this monastery. There may be many steps to climb for the monastery does sit 300 metres above the sea but you will not be disappointed. You will need a hat and water in the strong sun! The monastery itself is quite small being only 5 metres deep but 40 metres wide... More

One of the most important Monastery from the Cyclades, some steps to walk, outside and inside the monastery. Ther are rules in terms of clothes to enter on the monastery, no shorts.
