The inside of this Monastery is remarkable - definately worth a look. Unfortunately the hours to actually go inside are unclear, we lucked out and happen to be walking by early Sunday afternoon and it was open. Site is free to go in.

I visited this monastery at least on a 8 occasions over the last 11 years and in my every visit I get the same feeling. The spirituality of the place is second to none.

We were looking forward to visiting but somewhat surprisingly we were asked whether or not we were Orthodox before entering the church. When we said that we were not Orthodox we were told that we could not enter.

It's a female orthodox monastery with strict dreess code as prescribed by the orthodox tradition (means mainly desent dreess code for women, no short skirt, etc). At the entrance you can find a small water fountain. It's basically the grave for St Ephraim remains.

Aghios Efrem is really a miracle worker. God works through him so Don t miss the opportunity to pray in this nice location and to become friends with Aghios Efrem.
