The monastery is a beautiful example of byzantine art. There is also a great view of the island from there.

One of the most beautiful and full of history monastery in Greece.
After so many disasters in Chios like the big earthquake and the slaughter in 1881 it still stand proudly.

it is truly an amazing place, well kept, a place of true devoutness. You can find there the history and path of your faith, of religion. You can feel the piety of all those people once been there following the devine service and you can join your prayer along with all the prayers of the past... Unique!
