  • Should be considered to secure the visit in this monastery during the excursion of the traveler to the resource. Founded in 1720 with the iconostasis dating 17-18th century visitors have the opportunity to visit a separate part inside the green with a spectacular view of the deep blue. Worth staying during operation as it is a separate authentic experience. For women provided skirts while regarding traffic hours the monastery remains closed during noon 1 pm. -5 pm.

  • Kefalonia is located in a very beautiful setting with amazing views to the sea and beaches. The resource is a wonderful site that combines many natural beauties.

  • After a nice walk up from Askeli, we had pleasant drinks at cafe near to the Monastery. A sign states that you need to wear long trousers/skirt to enter the Monastery - however various cotton cloth pieces can be found in entrance proper to cover up any bare skin. Freebie Turkish Delight tasters at entrance which was a nice touch. Inside not a great deal to see; chapel with Christian iconography if you like that sort of thing, small courtyard, tiny giftshop and that's about it. No access to living quarters but I guess that's understandable if a bit disappointing (an example rather than an occupied room may be an idea). Excellent views across to mainland Greece from just outside entrance proper - I can see why they chose the location over 3 centuries ago!
  • Beautiful monastery and very beautiful church. I
