Our Pater Evdokimos (the resident monk) in now well-known from visitors' reviews and increasing media coverage. As they say in Greece 'ola ta lefta' ! Literally he makes all the difference.
Whilst the monastery is a must for its views , its history , its treasures his Holiness' pasta and open hospitality makes this trip an unforgettable experience.

Very nice location that you may pray! Located around 35 mins driving from Andros the temperature is around 3-4 degrees lower than Andros! It is very nice, decorated with attention to detail! It is worth visiting it!!!

Spectacular monastery with a great view over the valley. The road towards the monastery is pretty hard (parts of dirt road) but is worth to visit it.

All monasteries of Andros are well worth visiting! History, locations, nature, traditional products are what you get beyond a priceless personal spiritual experience!

The monastery was well worth the effort from our base in Andros Town. Other reviewers have said how interesting it is and how good the views are, which I endorse. The monastery itself is enormous, whereas the holy chapel at its heart is tiny - more Greek orthodox than Byzantine. It's an eclectic mix of crammed in styles with every speck of space decorated (and the best bit was some beautiful 'mashed up' Iznik tiles). There is some debate about how old the monastery is - today it is in spick and span good order and a lot of it seems to have been renovated in the last ten years. We didn't get to meet the resident priest or eat his pasta, but we were able to have a coffee at the 'Panorama' cafe just above the monastery.
We took a cab from Chora to the village of Fallika (12E) and then walked the last uphill stretch up the zigzag road (our penance), although it is possible to take a car all the way there if you can find a willing driver. We then walked back to the Paradise Hotel, which took us nearly three hours, along Route 18, which then interconnected with other pathways lower down. To have walked there and back would have been a total killer as the pathway is very steep in parts and made up of loose rocks; other parts were somewhat overgrown. As with all the Andros Routes, however, the landscape is beautiful and the walk scenic. We met some friendly Greeks who were picking fresh figs and gave us handfuls to eat and there were a number of isolated chapels, although all were locked. This was a five hour round trip and very memorable.

Byzantium monastery founded approx 950 AC by Byzantinum emperor Nikiforos Fokas. It is like a miniature castle surrounded by fountains of fresh water and overaged sycamore trees. Very old Byzantinum church with paintings from that ages and bones from local saint St. Panteleimon. Superb view.

A must place to visit while at Andros. The monastery stands south of the main road that leads to Andros and the view is breathtaking
