Walking thru this Monastic complex you're humbled by seeing true craftsmanship of a bygone era, when time almost stood still. As much work was spent on the exterior of this Monastery was was done on the inside...Each Monastery I visited in Greece was unique in...More

You can reach the Panormitis monastery by road from Symi town, or by sea. There is a bus service I understand. We were on a boat tour, and this was a short stop on the way back to Rhodes. Getting to Panormitis is a pleasant...More

We went there by boat from Symi and it was really worthwhile. It's setting is beautiful and very peaceful. The architecture is also very interesting. The monastery also has a coffee shop.

The best view of this monastery is coming into the protected harbour on a visiting boat. Sadly, we were allowed only forty five minutes to view the place which was not nearly long enough. The church, in the inner courtyard, was worth visiting and it...More

Stopped off here on boat trip to Symi, wasn't too busy but can imagine some days it would be swarming with tourists. Only stayed just over an hour which was long enough. Sadly there was scaffolding up so no good photos but lovely little place.

The Monastery itself and the location are really very exciting.The history of the Monastery is old and important.The monument ,the architecture ,the handworks inside the church are rare.You should spend time to see the geography around the Monastery and the nature.

The ferry taking us from Rhodes to Symi stopped here for an hour which just gave us time to visit. The monastery was packed when we arrived so we had a walk around the area. Found a great baker with a wood fired oven and...More

Currently the outside covered due to restoration work. Very pretty chapel inside although visitor numbers going in and out aren’t controlled so is difficult to experience the calmness of the surroundings.

There wasn't a lot to see, but it was a beautiful place and great for a short stop. It is also worth it to take a moment to enter the beautiful little chapel and say a quick prayer.

Yes you can but its not widely advertised. There is a turquoise Parormitis Travel minibus that leaves Yialos at 10.30am from where the Pedi bus stops/starts and I think it goes around 2pm also. There may be an even earlier... More
