Must go on 14/8 for a unique Greek spiritual experience. Bonus: you will taste sweet holy bread as a part of the ceremony. Afternoon of course.
I enjoyed my visit to this Monastery the setting was so serene and peaceful. The site has a great museum which has a brilliant set of photos from the villagers from 1940 right upto 1970s along with the religious artifacts you would expect. The young lady who runs the museum is very knowledgeable. The little church on site is amazing with the original painted Icons and you are transported back in time.
