    Beautiful small monastery with monks. Treat and loykoymaki visitors. The area that is built has awesome coolness, even on the hottest summer days.

    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!
