  • No relation to the cosmopolitan Ikaria.. serenity ... quiet ... something divine which soothes the soul ... What you see in block.

  • South West corner of the island, just a few kilometres away. from Raches, here is the most beautiful of the island monastery, perched at 400 metres altitude, not far from a reservoir that holds back the waters of the river Halari. The monastery was named in Creator God (but "ktistìs, in modern Greek meaning Builder) hides beautiful frescoes, dated 1688. On the whole, the amazing location, with its view of the internal environment of the island and the surrounding sea. The monastery for many years is no longer inhabited by monks, on the other hand two ladies have used a large room at the entrance to the local products on sale
