  • Beautiful place, carefully designed to sit and admire not only the interior but the outdoor space...

  • The steep mountain in which the monastery is located amazes with its scale, but it is not the whole complex-high on top of this mountain there is an ancient building in which it makes sense to walk. The road is not simple but worth it. In the monastery there is a unique and interesting cave with an ancient source. Important!!! Lunch at the monastery from 13-14 and at this time you will not open the doors to the monastery.

  • We just parked something from the convent. You look into the sky and you see the rocks right above your head. Inside the monastery is the cave where the picture is found and the holy water is running. And the space with the relics, has the whole history of Greece. As well as Saints ' bones. It's worth a visit.

  • Magnificent monestary perched high on a cliff. Cave where an icon was discovered in 340? I think that led to its establishment
  • Stunning view. Wonderful monastery. One of the oldest of Greece. Visit it!
  • Orthodox Holy Monastery with great history credentials and a big museum
  • Nice place even though i am not religious
  • Shock and Awe, a place you must visit if you aree in the area
