Built on the hill above the bays, it is one of the oldest monasteries on the island. It was built in the 13th century but recontructed in 18th century. The are two levels - lower one consists of garden with some arches (picturesque). The upper level consists of church, museum and monks' cells. Entry is free, but remember that it closes the doors at 1 pm. Great views from the surrounding areas.

Historic monastery on a hill giving u an amazing sea view. Getting there by car is the easiest way, but roads are partly bit narrow. It’s really worthwhile to visit this place when being on Corfu.

One of the oldest monasteries at Corfu - with very representative artifacts in museum - and garden. There is possible to see a present of Serbian soldiers to monastery's brothers from 1916 - Handmade and engraved four cannon shells.

Light a candle in the beautiful church , delight in gorgeous icons and delicate mosaics, relax in the fragrant garden and take in the stunning vista. Hear the glorious bells ringing and open your spirit to the sublime.

The monastery is on the top of the hill. In order to go inside you need to cover your legs with a skirt provided by them, or if you have one, you can use a towel (as I did). It is well maintained, clean and tidy. It's worth a visit.

A short drive or walk from the beach and pier is this idyllic monastery from 13th century. The museum was closed. But the views from the monastery garden more than make up.

You can drive up the hill, note the Traffic lights though. Large parking area, pretty obvious when you get there. Short walk to monastery. No charge to enter, observing dress code. Great views from here.

Easily accessed from the scenic village of Paleocastritsa - this simple monastery is located on top of a small hill overlooking the blue waters of Paleocastritsa Bay

This is a good place to start your visit to the Paleokastritsa coast. The Monastery is better viewed from the lookout, just a short walk along the headland, from here you can also see the spectacular coastline of the area.

You can park for free at the bottom at the moment and then walk up the 6/7 minutes it takes you to get to the top then you can walk a bit further to the highest point and take in the amazing views, there is limited parking at the top but in busy periods these will go fast
