The Monastery was pleasant to view but wasn't the feature to me as I've seen/visited better. It is near Ano Mera and well worth a stop . The Town square was a great collection of Restaurants/Bars and Gift Shops with a secluded shady area to sit back and watch the world go by, Nice One !!

Easy to reach by Ano Mera bus from Mykonos Town (North terminal) the monastery is well worth a visit. In particular the carved tower and renaissance screen should not be overlooked. Unfortunately when we visited the attached museum appeared to be permanently closed (for winter?) but this should not detract from the experience. The nearby convent also displayed opening times...

This monastery is located in Anoe Mera and is well worth a visit. It is small but ornate and beautiful inside. There is a small square lined with shops and restaurants nearby

If you have some extra time in hand, stop by this place. It is quite elegant monastery. I was really surprised how nicely decorated it is. You can take photos there.

This place was amazing. It's like stepping back in time. The inside of the monastery is well preserved and captures the religion and faith of the people. Inside you will find gifts of thanks to Mother Mary for safe sea travels of many seaman.

It's a little bit of a trek but well worth it to visit this Monastery. There are also some shops nearby along with a cafe. The outside is plan and white and the inside is as ornate as a church can get. I have to say I wasn't sure what to expect but it was a real treat to visit... More

The Monastery was nice to look at but probably not even worth the small entrance fee. No info whatsoever was provided and I wouldn't really bother to go back next time.

This place was absolutely beautiful inside. The front alter area is completely covered in intricate frescos and gold. You would never guess from the outside! There are also several places to eat and touristy shops in the immediate area.

At 8 km southeast of Chora there is a small village called Ano Mera: there is the Monastery of Panagia Tourlani, founded in 1542. In it, the church that contains a high bell tower made in marble carvings shows beautiful images and religious symbols. Its massive baroque iconostasis (the altar screen), made in 1775 by Florentine artists, has small icons... More
