This monastery visit was an inspiration for us all as a family. We had to obey the single traffic light, to ascend the hill of the monastery, in our car, as the road was very narrow. Once at the top, we parked next to the...More

It’s a good 15 minute walk up a steep hill to the monastery but well worth the walk.The views are amazing, indeed walking down you get incredible views of the sea around Paleokastritsa which is stunning.

Loved everything about this place - the view, the architecture, the little shop, and more. If you're in the neighbourhood it's definitely worth the visit.

Beautiful arhitecture here with beautiful views over the beach and water. It's worth having a wander around the grounds and going into the cathedral. Note that women's shoulders and knees have to be covered but they'll provide coverings if you don't have any.

Amazing monastery which was really interesting. The chapel is beautiful and worth a visit. There is also a little museum that is worth a perusal. The views are stunning. Worth a visit.

Greek monasteries and churches are known to pick the best locations, but this one is one of the best I've seen, with a 380 degree view. The monaster itself is quite humble but full of many tasteful details. Too bad the beautiful leading to it...More
