While other monasteries in the area are bigger, or better preserved, or hold more interesting things, this one -built around the top of the rock, instead of on top of it- this small monastery is truly eye-catching. The interior paintings and iconography are worth the...More

The climb is worth it The views are incredible on this smaller of the monasteries. The architecture is spectacular and thinking that they used to have to climb up with wooden ladders just a few years ago is daunting. Well worth the climb

They all get rave reviews. This one if the 1st in a series of monasteries as you wind up the mountain. Not as high up but equally as pretty. Maybe not as spectacular, but the views are still awesome.

Closest monastery to Kastraki. There are some really nice frescos inside and awesome 360 degree views on top. It is also 1 of the quieter monasteries to visit as well which makes it a nicer experience.
