A monastery that played an integral part in the Greek Independence struggle of 1821. Built on a cliff, this is a majestic, awe-inspiring place. The road should be paved with asphalt, it's not the best one around, but it is accessible by regular vehicles.

It was a nice monastery, it didn't have anything extraordinary. Very nice the church inside. We visited it about 12.30 and we didn't find anyone ... We wanted to see the clothes and belongings of karaiskakis but it was locked.

Nice spiritual location, fantastic view at the spot, the church is build inside a rock. Also the road to monastery is very beautiful with a lot of breathtaking spots. Be careful when it rains with the road.

Awesome view, perched on the rocks South of Karpenisi. Well worth the trip through the winding road and the high moutains around
