“Best place to find yourself :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

I go there as often as I can, it is an Othodox nun's monastery and I find it really special.
Also they have an embroidery workshop at the monastry, it can be interesting to see, a small shop you can by some suvenirs or paintings.
It is a worderful place full with rosses during summer. there is a big parking near the monastery, you can also walk it there are aprox 2 km from Hotel continental and it will take you 30 minutes to enjoy the walk.
