Afer a drive along the coast and over high mountains we arrived at this green oasis. A monastery guarded by one older priest with his grey hair in a long tail. Cool water running from the dry mountains, Planate trees and wallnuts. Built on a...More

Well worth a visit whilst on Tilos this historic monastery is a pleasure to visit. In season, the local bus offers a trip out from Livadia (with other pick up points) for just 7.5 euro. It's worth it just for the stuning bus ride alone...More

Take Sunday bus leaving Livadia at 11:00 AM. 7€ round trip. Stops for an hour permitting ample time to explore the monastery. Take a camera as plenty of opportunities for great photography. Easy to walk around although there are a significant number of steps between...More

Amazing views driving here, both accessible by moped and car. Amazing church set into the bedrock. Lovely people wanting to show you around and offered us to go to their festival on 26th June. All food provided for. Geologists beware, so much strata and metamorphism...More

Shady, all green scenary. Monastry is very well preserved. The priest who welcomes you is a great, aged and well hearted man (you have to check when he is there). Bring an empty bottle to fill with the cold water of the spring!

Great quiet monastery and the way from Livadia is very rich in gorgeous scenes. We loved Tilos with its raw beauty untouched by tourism and will definitely go back.
