The monastery still shows marks after it burned down in the year 2000, but most of it has been rebuild to its former glory. Still it is not among the most spectacular monasteries of Samos, but it is among the oldest, if not the oldest. The view from the monastery towards the north is very nice, and it has a... More

Although some works were in progress when we visited it, it was obvious that this place really had very good days in past. Some very important wallpaintings, icons and a wooden temple were unfortunately burnt in summer of 1999 but still the monastery worths your visit. It's a big monastery and the whole building showed that many nuns used to... More
