  • Terrific and beautiful spot. Well worth a visit just to view the external vista. Inside is of much local religious significance and this shows in visitor numbers and queues for the church. Good nearby bakery too --- famous for its product.
  • The location and views are stunning. The monastery itself has two small museums inside. Also cafes and restaurants on site too for refreshments. Wish we had more time there, if you are on Symi I highly recommend.
