  • The monastery is ok. It's small and within half an hour you have seen. The road to the monastery and the view over the Libyan Sea from the monastery are well worth the effort.

  • Active monasteries with many different animals were taken care of in a good way it looked like. Stately buildings with views towards the sea. Admission 3 euros per person.

  • Preveli's monastery Orthodox and is inhabited by monks. The whole area of the monastery is reconstructed and there is also an interesting collection of icons. It is a local "ZOO"
