  • Don't take the road from the south! Ignore Google maps and take the road from Chios town, even if you're staying in the Kambos! Once you're there, you can see the church and its conservation workers, ...  more »
  • The location and the view is unique. The New Monastery is the Church whose mosaics are unique. The dome said to the old man that is the same as the Hagia Sophia in the city as they were themselves craftsmen and materials used. Over time it has suffered losses as well as the day of the visit, the Church was under construction and we managed to see the mosaic. There is a Museum, the monks ' cells, and showcase with bones, inhabitants of Chios who went to the monastery to save themselves but ultimately massacred by the Turks. There are buildings which are under construction and it was not possible to visit. It is great experience and well worth the visit!

  • A beautiful monastery, however it was closed at first when we got there in the afternoon... It opened up half a hour later when we finally got to go in. The history and stories of the monetary were lovely, but there isn't a lot to see. Reasonably you can see it all within an hour. However the scene around the monetary is gorgeous. For a free sight totally worth it, even if you need to go out of your way for it.
