Thessaloniki has a lot of beautiful churches. This is one of the ones you must visit. In a wonderful place, with view of the city and the Thermaikos golf!

The view is really great from there but you will not see anything that makes a monastery a monastery. Some of the staff is not very friendly.

There is only really the chapel to see at the site, although there is also a small bird aviary. There are also very good views of Thessaloniki and beyond. Suggest visiting this together with Osios David (the Latomou Monastery)

It is a trek up to the old town to get here - or get bus 23 - but the gardens are calm and peaceful and the whole place is very atmospheric
