We went to Platia ammos beach which was nearby (gosh so many steps-but worthed it). The monastery is near the beach so we went there to rest and organize our dinned in town. The hermit there seemed he liked that tourists were around.

This place is extremely beautiful. The hermit was really friendly providing the tourists with water and fruits. The view of the beach under the cliff was stunning I will never forget it.

The monastery was closed when we visited. So we didn't see too much of it. But what a view!!! Stunning.

We got our son christened at this unique monastery that overlooks the Ionian and even the Adriatic Sea. The church is really old with centuries old sacred icons and the Greek Orthodox ritual takes a special meaning in this evocative place. Outside there are extended patios and terraces, where we had a nice reception right after the ceremony. The monastery does not allow weddings which are considered a temptation for people who have taken the monastic oath, but I cannot imagine of a better place for a christening, or for an evening visit to catch the unbelievable sunset. I don't think you can find a sunset like this anywhere. Really.
