  • The Convent opens twice a day, from 08.30 until noon and 16.00 until 19.00. You must be suitably and respectfully dressed to gain admission, which is free of charge. The building is most impressive...  more »

  • Remotely see the large, relatively new monastery already lying. If you are dressed neatly (for the ladies there are skirts ready to put on the pants at the front door) can be done via a beautiful hall...

  • I really liked. Precious frescoes, paintings. Unfortunately, we had little time since we arrived before closing. Infinitely kind and patient nuns, even the eldest spoke good English. Ladies, uncovered shoulders and short skirts are inappropriate outfit.
  • Very disappointing. The monastery is inaccessible. The car park is just after the monastery and there is plenty of space. On entry which is free suitable attire us required skirts for women a must. The only place in the monastery you are allowed to see is the church itself and the gift shop. Everything else is out if bounds. Only takes less than 10 minutes to visit usd can take up to an hour to get there.
  • In a magical location is located this beautiful and crystal clear monastery. I strongly recommend you to operate in this monastery. Religious devoutness, melodic women's choir... In the end, go up to the archontariki to drink coffee!

  • The Monastery of Panagia Eleftherotria was founded in 1962 by the Archimandrite Chrysostomos Gkelmpesi. The iconostasis of the Church is older (about 300 years) and comes from a church that was in this position but collapsed from earthquakes. Exterior evokes ancient Castle once around the monastery there are battlements on the towers. Inside the temple you'll see the remains of children killed by Herod in Jerusalem, rocks from the Holy Land and the Cross of the Holy Sepulchre.
