Owner description: 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!!)

A great monastery and ancient inheritance as this place is hidden and situated among the mountains. Is one of the protected places of Ounesco in Greece, which i guess says a lot about the history of this monastery. It was great being there for a baptism.

A worthy place to visit for any number of reasons: spritual, historical, architectural, or even just a quiet place to vacate. It was cool and lightly raining when I visited the grounds and the church. Definitely worth a visit in the area.

It is one of the most important monuments of Middle Byzantine architecture and art, and has been listed on UNESCO's World Heritage Sites.

The monastery is located in the hills of Greece near Delphi. It's a quaint little monastery worth a visit. There were a few tour buses that brought groups here, but if you've got a car and have a couple hours stop by for a quick tour.

They have organic olive oil they make to support the monastery. We noticed that on the day we were there that the large tour buses were gone around 2pm, not sure if this is always the case though.
