Next to Ancient Olympia is that wonderful monastery in the nature. It brings you peace and calm feelings, closer to spirituality.

We used TaxiKatakolo Tours to Ancient Olympia to get here. It is quite off the beaten track and all the more beautiful and special because of this. The scenery was fantastic - hills, valleys, mesas, etc. We drove into the area above the Monastery and walked down some stairs to the church. We didn't seem much before descending the stairs but the doors to the church (which were closed) were beautiful. Our guide, Marilena, went down to get a nun to open the church for us. The church is built into a cave. The church was astonishing. Every inch of it was covered in paintings - ceilings, archways, walls, etc. And, the floors were marble. Someone certainly wanted the place to be special and awe-inspiring. The women in the group had to wear "skirts" (they provided some but I was able to use my very large scarf) and then men needed to wear long pants (which were also provided). There was no cost to enter the church but we were able to leave a donation.

A unique site where the monastery is located, curved in the slope of a rocky mountain in the heart of the woods. You will be rewarded with a stunning view from the top of the hill down to the endless olive groves and vineyards. The cells of the nuns near the chappel of St. Antonios, the main Church of Holy Mary ( Panagia ), will cmpenste the visitor of any age. Unique experience to hear the choir nuns at he Gospel. Hospitality is excellent offers of homemade sweets and source mineral water.

We didn't planned to go there. But it was amazing experience.
The nun who talked with us was very friendly.
Amazing view on the top of the mountain. You can touch the sky there.
I'm not religious but the feeling was that you are safe and really somebody is taking care of you.
Go and you won't regret it.

The outside is picturesque but you couldn't get inside to see what it was like so we can't say much about it.

We went go on a Sunday morning ..... you can hear the signing reverberate all around the valley although not the time to actually visit as we did not want to disturb the services

Beautiful, interesting place located near the archaeological area Of Olympia. This was part of our tour while in the port of Katakolon. It is a Greek Orthodox monastery. The nuns were busy preparing for something special that was happening the next day, so were all bustling around - but we were free to roam the site. The chapel itself is built inside a cave. Very ornate.
The view from Kremasti in magnificent as it is located on the top of a hill where there is a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains, Folio forest and Erymanthos river along with olive groves. This place is definitely worth visiting.

We were taken there by Katakolon Taxi and were blown away by the beauty and simplicity of the place. The faith simply shone from the eyes of the nun who assisted us. One left feeling profoundly that one had visited somewhere special.

This was one of my very favorite things that we did in greece! I loved hearing the nuns talk about the history of the icon of the virgin mary and the views were worth the walk for sure.
