  • A really peaceful and special place to visit. The walk to the monastery is lovely and makes it part of the serene attraction. Ok to do in cooler weather too. Bring your comfy walking shoes!

  • This Byzantine complex was established in the 10th century on Mount Hymettus, overlooking Athens. The original church from this period is still accessible and some of the frescoes are in an excellent condition. This Eastern Orthodox monastery is an important part of the story of Athens which, of course, did not stop after the Classical Period. An added bonus of visiting is the views of the city and the serene natural surroundings that you can go for a walk through.
  • Amazing walk and great view of Athens. You can get a taxi to drop you off at the bottom of the hill and walk through the middle trail between the streets and enjoy the beautiful flowers as you make your way to the top.
  • A bit off the beaten path. Worth a visit as a change from the ancient sights of Athens.
  • Amazing Byzantine monastery amid wonderful natural surroundings, springs, parks etc
  • Amazing monastery! A must see..
