While it may be true that the focus of most is to get to Ag Ioanni (Mama Mia's church), a short stop at Ag Riginos on the way to the other end of the island provides a peaceful alternative. Martyred in the Church's early history,...More

This monastery was a last minute choice of destinations due to the weather. I am so glad I went. It really is a must see. It was easy to get to via a small bus from the port that made multiple daily trips back and...More
