  • Interesting monastery with back story involving ruby red slippers on display by saint. Donkeys outside by stall held more interest for our 11 year old. Nice place to stop off at and have a look around  more »

  • Very quiet. Grounds are very well kept. Obligatory cats. The actual Church was locked so unable to comment about the interior. Other things are the cemetery and that is about all there is to see and do. Disappointing as it does have some good reviews they hit you live and learn.
  • Quiet and calm place. Is the place where the Saint of the Island lived and it is well known in all Greece as the saint of forgiveness because he helped save the life of the man who killed saints brother but who repented.
  • A small 15th century monastery with lovely gardens. There is a little tourist shop and a nice taverna. It can get a bit busy with tourist coaches, it’s nicer to go on your own if you can.
  • A short stop to this monetary is all that's needed. It is beautiful and you can go into the chapel if the caretaker is there. Dark and full if icons, incense and old furniture. The alter area is locked and you can't see it. I wouldn't go out my way for a revisit but it was nice to see it.
  • A picturesque place to visit in Zakynthos. We have been with the ParonTravel agency and I love to see these glimpses of traditional Greek life! the monastery is quite small.
