The view counts

A horse back ride or trek up to this church is what it's all about.The breathtaking view is the reason for the visit, not the church. You must be a serious hiker and have plenty of time to go by foot. We thoroughly enjoyed taking Hariette's Hydra Horses up there.

Although I visited the church on my way down from Mount Eros unfortunately it was closed and could only see the outside.

very nice folks working here, not at all crowded, full of history about this wealthy patriot who lived her in the 1800s. authentic furnishings, an art gallery in the basement is ...well... an art gallery, not notable.

Small yet beautiful
May 2017 • Family
Very peaceful and quite. Beautiful interiors. It is a Greek Orthodox church. An ecclesiastical museum can also be visited , though there isn't anything much. Can get there on a horse back or by walk . Horses can be taken from the port. The entire island has no motor transport. Best way to experience the island is by foot only if you are okay to walk and hike.

Very nice view from the top.

Nice church, went there on a horse ride, I reccomend Harriet's Horses.
A very nice ride, you see all the view and the village from the top. The church is in the top of the hill facing Hydra's town. A really unique view of Hydra from up there.

A beautiful church with a very strong vibration of silence (hesychia)!
Sep 2016 • Friends
This is a lovely small church that obviously has seen some very deep prayer. In addition to the beautiful interior, it has a strong vibration of silence (hesychia in Greek) accumulated from a long history of prayer and meditation. It made us want to sit and practice meditation for some time. This would be a lovely respite from a day in the hot sun and a good place to sit and recoup your energy. There are lovely icons and a fairly typical Greek Orthodox church interior. The accompanying ecclesiastical museum is a very nice little museum with vestments of the 18th and 19th centuries, icons, manuscripts and printed books. The staff had a deep knowledge of the icons when we asked a question and we got a very thorough answer in English. They also described the different monastic establishments on the island. It was two euros and a nice half and hour.

Overhyped Hydra!
Sep 2015 • Couples
Hydra (pronounced surprisingly as Heedra), is one of the smallest inhabited Greek islands and has no motorised transport. A short tender ride from the anchorage in the bay brought us to the town’s harbour, where we came ashore at the dock used by the fast ferry from Athens. The harbour had a mixture of fishing and leisure craft either tied alongside or at anchor.

Bars, cafes and restaurants extended along the waterfront, with some shops and a small supermarket, the latter being possibly the only venue that locals would patronise regularly. All the narrow, cobbled streets that led away from the harbour climbed steeply and it was interesting to wander along the alleyways, with any heading steeply down, taking you back to the harbour. Even hereabouts, the retail outlets generally targeted tourists, and were extremely expensive, some items could have been purchased for considerably less elsewhere. Restaurant menus advertised main courses starting at 13 Euro, so Hydra was no bargain basement on the food front either, a point we noted on all the Greek islands we visited; whatever happened to the meal for two and wine for under 20 Euro?

Although we did not venture that far around the headland, we were told there was a small beach area and some passengers enjoyed this amenity. Wandering back to the ferry dock, we watched the catamaran arrive noisily from Athens and observed those leaving and joining, a motley mix but without obvious signs of any overt great affluence.

We were a bit disappointed with Hydra, which lacked the character its rustic lifestyle should have oozed.
