  • It is not easy to reach the monastery by driving from bottom to the top for half an hour, very steep and uneven road with a side cliff. Beautiful island view along the road. Beautiful view on the...  more »

  • Lovely, but long, walk from Kalamaki. Stunning views on the way. The monastery is small but lovely. There is a small canteena just at the bottom to quench your thirst
  • Really nice little monastery, and a challenging but nice walk from Kalamari.
  • Amazing views but you need a 4x4
  • Very nice view from Mount Skopos
  • Incredible place. Get some drinks at the Caffe down the road and walk around the place for a while. Incredible views and you can go inside. Still running as a monastery to this day. Calm and quiet atmosphere. Not many others here. Road to is rocky and bumpy to the extreme. Bring ATVs/quadbikes and it is great fun offroading up the rocks. Could possibly do it in a jimny or other 4x4 but would take a while. Worth going though.
