After visiting a local winery we decided to visit the monastery. We wandered around for a bit and then sat at the small cafe and enjoyed the view. Really loved the serenity of the place!

A lovely little Monastery set in a shaded location and not far from the Asprogia-Kannaviou Dam. The Monastery is worth stopping off at for 20 minutes to enjoy the shade and look into the small chapel.

We visited as part of an excursion. Smallish Monastry with some very interesting icons etc. A quaint 'Cafe' where you could sit under cover,and look out on to some fabulous views over the hills and valleys.

Is it worth the travel? I don't know. It's just a beautiful old monastery in the mountains. If you expect more, you'll be disappointed. I liked the scenic trip through the hills and into the mountains. The view from the backyard is breathtaking and the whole place just exudes tranquility.

Up in the hills - super views and lovely church. The church had a pulpit in the heavens........ There is only one monk left and when he dies they don't know what will happen. Anyone want a job???
