  • Have been in this monastery. and the excursion was not religious, first stopped at shop knives, because in the monastery, then for seasoning ... But the monastery I still in my heart. There is such a belief, or authorisation by chains around himself opposite faces of the Virgin and ask for what you want. I asked for a child, and I have my baby appeared a year later. I want to go back, to say thank you to Virgin!

  • The history that is behind this monastery is more than adventurous. An icon were several times by Turkish gestohlen...wurde again brought back with angels and with a chain attached to a pillar. The chain and the pillar can still be admired and are as admired holy relic in the monastery. Note that dress code here. Be something to summery dressed, get a long skirt to the overstay. To make a photo with a nun is not allowed. But otherwise a nice and interesting tourist destination. But unfortunately, there are tourists who behave not adapted. What a pity. The connected Museum is worth a visit.

  • An attractive monastery up in the mountains, it's worth a stop as the entrance fee is reasonable (€2). It's worth noting that women will be asked to cover up if they're too casually dressed, but wraps are freely available at the entrance for this purpose. Men wearing shorts, however, seem to have nothing to worry about.
  • Great little monastery and the story about the Panagia Kardiotissa icon is interesting.
  • One of the many magnificent Greek monasteries
  • Great monestry
