  • If you go to Kalavryta not neglect visiting the historic monastery of Agia Lavra! Modest dress (long skirt) and attention to time, closes in one afternoon and reopens an hour in the afternoon (4-5).

  • Great monastery with very important historical value. They still keep the banner under which the Greek rebels swore their oath against the Ottoman empire by the Guidance of Palaion Patron Germanos.
  • A simple monastery and place of workshop, it saw some of the fiercest fighting during the Greek war of Independence in 19th century and the Second World War. It is a a sombre place with historical significance, where a rag tag group of resistance fighters launched the fight that later lead to the foundation of Modern Greece. The nearby town of Kalyvryta is 5 minutes away and worth a stop.
  • Very beautiful and historical.
  • Peaceful, the right place for the Monastery. Beautiful landscape
  • OK only with agelastoys fathers paid 10 euros for two crosses for little while writing 4 euro one over and we saw ourselves so important to our Greece relics without having to explain anything or to young children that we had together. Treat delight?? Not even in our imagination or even water.
