The most accessible monastery from all Meteor. It can even pass a disabled person. A wonderful place like all Meteor monasteries. In the church lies Haralampiy. Friendly nuns. A small shop at the entrance. Admission is 3 euros from an adult.

We were early season and early morning, therefore not busy yet. The nuns have restored the monastery very well.
