It is a beautiful and large Monastery with a beautiful view among the trees. You can visit and worship the church and see the small church as a basement, worship the graves and sip the coffee that they offer you to the archontariki

Location and view is amazing. Very well maintained monastery. Also worth to visit the waterfalls of Drimona, which are about 7km far from the monastery.

Very relaxing place. With a very nice garden. Close to Agia Anna. Must visit if you are in the area and you like Monasteries.
