  • Away from the crowd and on a hill overlooking the sea, this monastery stands quietly in a charming way.  more »
  • A nice quiet Orthodox monastery, which can be visited during the opening hours. You must be sure to dress accordingly and respect the holy place. There is a small Greek Church, which is open within the rest outside of the monastery.

  • Built in Piney hillside, with spectacular views. Of particular interest is the precious wooden temple built in Cappadocia in Asia minor in the 17th century, the wooden iconostasis and the imposing Episcopal throne.

  • Very nice monastery rich with history from the local battles / war. Highly recommend getting the small booklet that tells the story and stopping by the small coffee shop outside of the gate.
  • 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 standing with apisteyti views and counting
