Beautiful view of Lefkada
Jul 2020
A nice monastery, with the church, shop, zoo..... overlooking Lefkada on one side and the beach and the sea on the other. Worth stopping if you travel through Lefkada.

Peaceful, interesting, well- maintained monastery and mini zoo
Aug 2019
A beautiful place. An active monastery with Greek Orthodox monks on site. Attractive church open to visits. The various buildings are well maintained.
We saw the animals being fed in the zoo. And we played with several little frisky kittens.
A majestic view from its great height over the land and sea beyond.
Well worth a visit.

A lovely break from the beach
Aug 2019 • Family
The children loved it! The little zoo is well maintained and the animals are well fed.
We saw several types of birds and parrots, turtles, geese, deers and squirrels.
We visited the monastery which is also very well maintained.
The entrance is free but we made a donation to the monastery to help them looking after the animals.
Large free parking area at the entrance.

Short break from beach and swimming
Jul 2019 • Family
We visited this place because everybody recommends it as a must see. It is a nice place with a monastery church, nautical museum and a zoo. The zoo is quite small, mostly birds, although there was a sign of deer living in the zoo.

Quaint monastery with free entry
Jun 2019 • Solo
Beautiful monastery just a few easy minutes drive from Lefkada town.

Lovely buildings, beautifully decorated church and nice little souvenir shop. Those inside are friendly and welcoming. If you drive their you'll find plenty of parking. Dressing modestly is required ( so shoulders covered and knees hidden).

Tip: if you head there in summer try the water at the small drinking fountain. The was is cold and a relief from the heat.

Nice view, but no better than stopping on the roadside. Cannot endorse this place due to the terrible conditions the animals are kept in. One dead parrot and a bunch of dehydrated deer do not make a zoo. Bus-loads of tourists are hardly compatible with the traditional serenity of a monastery... one might even go so far as to accuse them of chasing the euro over enlightenment of the soul.

A nice way to spend an afternoon.

Faneromeny Monastery is the most important religious center on Lefkada island, dedicated to the Mother of God, is 4 km from Lefkada Town. Being the protector of the island, the Mother of God is celebrated on the Holy Trinity Monday (the first Monday after Pentecost), a day when a lot of believers come to attend the service. The entrance is free, as well as in the ecclesiastical museum, but photography is forbidden in the museum. According to tradition, this was a place of worship for the goddess Artemis, but in the year 63, when the Apostle Paul passed through the area, he sent to the island three of his disciples who prayed and the statue of the goddess broke and the locals built here a little church. The name comes from the wooden icon, which the Mother of God has outlined it herself. The monastery is built on a hill at an altitude of 135 m in the south-western village of Fryni. At the entrance there is a very large parking space, free of charge. Attractive for children is the small zoo.
