One of the most impressive 17th c. monasteries in Greece. The landscape is picturesque and the architecture of the monastery is scenic, actually this monument is notable for its unique artistic combination of the Byzantine tradition with the Italian mannerism.

It was only a quick visit to the city so we didn’t have time to explore much. This wonderful church though dominated the square where we had dinner and made for a lovely backdrop. It is right by the very popular Lion Square and the structure is beautiful. The history of this town is amazing and this church has seen it all. We didn’t have time to go inside but it dominates the square and proudly has the Greek flag flying up high.

Children love the adventure of dodging the waves to visit this very lovely little church which sits just beyond the harbour of Georgioupolis

A nice walk with interesting churches, chapels, a cave and a small herbor at the end of the gorge. Take enough water with you in high summer.
