Cute Little Monastery

The Monastery of Panayia Tourliani is very close to the restaurant that the cruise ship tours take their passengers to eat. It is worth a little pop-in. A quiet oasis.

The monastery was smaller than we had anticipated, but the location was lovely because it was surrounded with flowers and trees.

Although rated as average the monastery is nice to visit but only as part of a tour as it is a trek to get there. Best on a guided tour so you get to know the history. the views are however very good, local food at town square basic but good value.

It is not worth the trip but, if you pass by, it is a pleasant stop. Small church, there is not much to see but it speaks of a long religious tradition that continues till now. Entrance costs 1 Euro.

This site was included in a Scenic Views of Mykonos tour booked through Norwegian cruise lines. The Monastery of Panagia Tourliani was founded back in 1580. You walk through a beautiful red door to the courtyard which has a beautiful marble bell tower with intricate folk carvings. Inside their is a iconostasis (altar screen), made in 1775 by Florentine artists.... More

The Monastery was pleasant to view but wasn't the feature to me as I've seen/visited better. It is near Ano Mera and well worth a stop . The Town square was a great collection of Restaurants/Bars and Gift Shops with a secluded shady area to sit back and watch the world go by, Nice One !!

Easy to reach by Ano Mera bus from Mykonos Town (North terminal) the monastery is well worth a visit. In particular the carved tower and renaissance screen should not be overlooked. Unfortunately when we visited the attached museum appeared to be permanently closed (for winter?) but this should not detract from the experience. The nearby convent also displayed opening times...

This monastery is located in Anoe Mera and is well worth a visit. It is small but ornate and beautiful inside. There is a small square lined with shops and restaurants nearby

If you have some extra time in hand, stop by this place. It is quite elegant monastery. I was really surprised how nicely decorated it is. You can take photos there.

This place was amazing. It's like stepping back in time. The inside of the monastery is well preserved and captures the religion and faith of the people. Inside you will find gifts of thanks to Mother Mary for safe sea travels of many seaman.
