We visited the monastery because my niece was baptized there this weekend. It was a really beautiful monastery, among pine trees. Quite with a very nice view. The road that leads to the monastery and the view from up there is enchanting. We strongly recommend for you to visit!

Very relaxing place. With a very nice garden. Close to Agia Anna. Must visit if you are in the area and you like Monasteries.

When you are in the area this place is a must visit. We were there on a sunday, so the place was a bit busy. There was free cake and coffee. Beautiful place in a nice area.

Coming down the road from the Waterfalls of Drymona driving towards Rovies you come to the Monastery of Saint David. For a non orthodox person the small courtyard monastery offers a small rest break. We arrived at the Monastery where I donned a kilt over my shorts for religious sensibilities. In the centre of the courtyard is a small church where 'sweet smelling' relic is found. Outside is a grave to a monk who became highly sort after for his healing abilities.While we stood outside in shaded courtyard the monks also kindly offered us coffee and cake.

For the orthodox faithful the church is highly visited and respected.

Like many visitors, we discovered this beautiful monastery on way home from viewing ship wreck island from above. It was the elderly couple that drew our attention, selling fruits, liqueurs, and oils at the roadside, then you realise hidden behind is a beautiful monastery. The Monks were so accommodating, i was concerned that i was not appropriately dressed, but they were ok. Very informative about the history of the church, very peaceful atmosphere. The church is beautiful, well worth a visit.

Well worth a visit, full of visitors despite being off the beaten track. Then outside the monastery we bought 2kg cherries for just €5.00 - a real delight.

The ride up the mountain is so beautiful, the roads are narrow but our bus driver drove them perfect. keep your camera on at all times there are so many views that pop up. and the clouds come in fast and look fascinating. wear sneakers the grounds are damp.

It is a beautiful and large Monastery with a beautiful view among the trees. You can visit and worship the church and see the small church as a basement, worship the graves and sip the coffee that they offer you to the archontariki

Very quiet location, cool even when hot near the coast. Very friendly monks and other pilgrims. Can get a taxi from Rovies for about 15Euro, but better if you rent a car. We used Car n Motion (local to Evia) - very good rates and full insurance, so no hassles at the end of the trip.

It is a simple orthodox monastery. I do not think it is a must thing to see because I have seen others more beautiful. The day I went there the church was very crowded.
