This is yet another site which I am amazed that you do not yet have a listing for!!!! It is a 10th c. Byzantine Monastery with the "remains" of "Holy Luke"., a great healer of the 10th c. which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and etc., etc. When you list it on your site, I will write a review of a visit here (which was astounding!!)

This is a beautiful monastery well worth the trip from Athens. We were lucky enough to see onsite monks preparing for Holy Thursday prayers. The location is in a secluded area that is breathtaking.

This ancient monastery has incredible religious, architectural and geographical significance. The views are breathtaking and you do wonder how the remoteness was handled 1000 years ago. Meaningful displays give you a sense to buildings and the religious communities. Fortunately we were there between bus loads...More
