It is a Greek Orthodox Monastery. Incredible architecture. A few local farmers sell pistachio outside so you buy some. Not sure if they sell everyday. It is around 15mins away from the port. Taxi is available at the port.

The monastery was very nice. We went there with the bus, and we walked around. You can light candles inside the church, which is pretty cool!
