Once you have marvelled at the cliff-side wonder of the imposing Monstery of Hozoviotosa, you will find another nearby site just as memorable, for other reasons.. It is the Monastery of Saint George Volsamitis, which has been lovingly restored single-handedly by Sister Constantina, who is there to guide you through the history of this 16th century small structure and its famed 'miraculous' water source which is still there to drink from. It is filled with stunning seventeenth century frescoes and fits beautfully among the terraces going down to the seaside. Those terraces were once the site of a type of mint--valsam--which gives its name to this peaceful and evocative site, made even more moving by the loving restoration of Sister Constantina.
