Moni Vronta i located in an altitude of 460 meter in the mountains on the north coast. There is a fantastic view from the monastery. The route up the mountain to Moni Vronta is so beautiful. You pass the idyllic village Vourliotes on the route. It is a must to visit Vourliotes. Moni Vronta was founded in 1566 by the... More

The monastery still shows marks after it burned down in the year 2000, but most of it has been rebuild to its former glory. Still it is not among the most spectacular monasteries of Samos, but it is among the oldest, if not the oldest. The view from the monastery towards the north is very nice, and it has a... More

Perched a couple of miles above the lovely village of Vurliotes, this monastery looks abandoned but it is inhabited by a few monks, who will happily and proudly show you the place. It has been partially destroyed by fire and it is in a very slow process of rehabilitation. The view of the island from there is mesmerizing. The place... More

We stumbled on this by chance, at first thought it was completely abandoned, but there are a few monks (one doing the Hoovering while we were there!). It looks as though it might be a rather lengthy restoration project . . It's actually a couple of kilometres further up the hillside from Vourliotis along a decent sealed road. Not a... More

Although some works were in progress when we visited it, it was obvious that this place really had very good days in past. Some very important wallpaintings, icons and a wooden temple were unfortunately burnt in summer of 1999 but still the monastery worths your visit. It's a big monastery and the whole building showed that many nuns used to... More
