Nicely situated monastery. The museum has a collection of interesting icons, artifacts and historical documents. The main church is beautifully decorated, but men only.

little bit northwest of Kalloni there is this huge monastry, with a lot of small chapels outside. Inside there is a totally different world, There are lots or various trees in the yard which I guess were brought there throughout the years and centuries. Wonderful paintings and all in all a good location to be.

We rent a scooter and stopped by this beautiful old monastery. The monastery is quite large but I suppose one hour is enough to see the place. There is a small restaurant/cafe in the monastery area.

I was staying in the neighbourhood and passed a few times the vilagge of Limonos. It'looks special, the houses, the monastery, which consists of 4 churches....on a sunny hot day, it was a marvelous place to stop by, walk for an hour and afterwards enjoy a cup of greek coffee in front of the monastery.

Beautiful place to walk around for an hour or so. Very interesting and quite shaded! Make sure you go as a part of a tour so that you can learn about the history of the area. Great shop too!

We stopped at this monastery on our way to Sigri, it was only a short time to look around before we had to on the Bus again. There are only 3 monks there now and the whole place is in need of some care which is a shame. We would like to go back again when we are in the... More
