The monastery Ano Mera was smaller than I had anticiated but I enjoyed seeing it. The chapel That is part of it is very ornate, and you can take photos with no flash. The monastery is peaceful and pretty. The town square is very small, where we had wine and Greek appetizers at a taverna after the tour. There are... More

We called in on the way to beautiful Lia beach. Take the road that goes inland to Ano Mea. Keep driving until you think you gave gone too far and you will drive past the rear of the monastery. Only£1 to get in. The interior of the actual church is richly decorated but still humble. We were blessed to be... More

A very inspiring and calming old monastery. For sure worth the visit. It's in the town of ano mera and all of it worth the drive.

Entrance fee at 1 euro. 從市区开車到 Monastery of Paleokastro 需要大约20分钟。 𨒂途風景还不錯,开車兜風很舒服。 延路有加油站好吃的餐廳 但是要小心彎延的山路。 這裡參觀需要門票1€..

It took us 8 years of visits to Mykonos to finally visit the monastery. I say his with regret because it is a fantastic gem well worth your time. Do not judge by the outside. The interior of the church is splendid and a fine example of Greek Orthodox architecture and decoration. Many very fine icons here. I would highly... More

Inside the monastery was beautiful, so much to look at. A monk let me take a picture of him while touring the court yard.

I have to admit at the outset that there is no way I would visit the inside of a monastery and this austere 18thC monastery has no architectural merit to offer from the outside either. So why am I writing a review? Well, Paleokastro is a fascinating place both visually and archeologically. The monastery and collection of two chapels, ruined... More
