This old monastery dating back to 6th century is located on a hill. It has an octogonal court in the middle of which there are remnants of a column on top of which St Simeon is supposed to have lived from 541 until his death in 592. St Simeon is known to be a devouted Christian, practising the religion to its extremes. Today, no roof is left from the monastery, the remnants are mainly walls and columns. The view from the monastery is legendary. The monastery is now surrounded by wind tribunes which create an impressive contrast between the ancient and the modern. The place can be considered a very nice spot for photographers in that aspect.
