  • It's a bit of a hike but worth the effort, the old monastery is amazing and the setting is just stunning 
  • Historic convent have each ΄Ellinas and friend of Greece to visit to see at least started the spark of the Greek revolution and what adverse conditions maintained the Greek consciousness in the years of Ottoman rule. The natural environment is unique in the lousios Gorge with steep slopes the river the luxuriant vegetation and after the Ancient Gortys time travel is completed from antiquity until today , the abandonment of these monuments

  • The Church in the new Monastery Philosopher has very interesting frescoes and icons. The old monastery of the philosopher and the secret school need to do arduous walking but worth it. And don't stay in the ruins that you will encounter and frustrated, look a little higher and the dome of the old temple that pops up among the rocks will reward you.
