The monastery lies under the flight path of the almost adjacent airport so it can be both exciting and noisy to be there. Best views are from above where there is less noise.

This monstery is even visible when the plane is landing, so is the first place a person sees when arriving on Corfu. Tiny and picturesque, with a good spot for planespotting.

Ignore the planes and focus on the blue of the sky and water reflecting on this oasis! It is quite breathtaking when your first see the monastery and well worth a visit.

Nice little monastery with you can get to by walking over the small bridge from the main road or by another road to the side which allows you to drive up to it. The place is small but nice.
