However the guardian of the temple, the one who holds the key to open the monastery to you. Because if you don't ask her, she won't open you!

Peaceful and authentic setting.

The place itself has numerous taverns and on the thoroughfare stands a seemingly endless series of souvenir stalls. Everything that the inhabitants in the barren north of the island produce themselves is offered: Vegetables, oil, honey as well as ceramics and weaving works. About 1km west of the village lies the monastery of Panagia/anafonitria. The monastery, which was hardly damaged in the great earthquake, has long since been abandoned. Upon entering the plant, it is noticeable that the angular bell tower also served the defense in earlier times. Several buildings are grouped around the large courtyard. Opposite the entrance is the three-aisled monastery church. The place in front of the monastery complex is well suited for a rest or a bigger break.
