  • Like many places in Corfu this place deserves a visit, but it's best to come early in the morning. A large parking is easily accessible next to the monastery. The place is quiet, very intimate chapel, and accessed in a small group. A small port with the local fishermen is located in front of the monastery. The contrast is striking with the runway of the airport of Corfu which is 200 m from the monastery, "troubling" the tranquility of the place. A "spot" photo is available at the top of the site and allows nice pictures.

  • Small monastery on an islet, offers amazing views, was a former monastery of ladies, now only a chapel and a small altar for the faithful lit candles. What more occupies is a souvenir shop, a penalty, not much inside, but outside is of great beauty and is sticking to the landing of corfu, so you can say hello to new visitors. Highly recommended.

  • This is the Iconic image of Corfu that almost everyone will recognise and think it is Mouse island, but it is not. You can take a few minutes boat trip from here to Mouse Island,but do not miss walkin...  more »

  • Must-see, must-photograph, most iconic landmark of Corfu. The monastery is now only a small Chapel and souvenir shop but it's easy to get lost in its history. Spectacular views of planes about to land, and likewise also spectacular view from the plane. Free entrance.
  • It is like a gem. You can walk to this little Monastery on the water through a little footbridge at the end of the runway of the airport, almost touching the bellies of the planes.
  • Amazing photos to be taken, not much to do The place looks as stunning in real as it does on photos. However, once you spent some time taking photos, trying to choose this one second with only few tourists in your frame and seeing landing place there is not much to do :) Definitely a must see in Corfu, but don't reserve much time for it as you will be bored. Luckily we have spotted a group of kittens playing on the roof of Monastery so we were saved :)
  • Absolutely picturesque place. And the airport is just on the other side do you can admire the planes landing over your head.
  • Mostly the surrounding is nice, the monastary itself is very small. There are a lot of crab around there.
