A very beautyful monastery with amazing view over the ocean. You can borrow clothes to cover knees and shoulders. You can’t take photos inside (but most people do it anyway😬🤪). You can not see all of the monastery but enough to be worth a visit!

The monastery is worth a short visit if only for the view. It is easy to access as it is on the main road around the island. As others have said, access is severely limited within the monastery grounds. You have to have covered shoulders...More

This is all that we have seen. We were in shorts and they insisted to get us some clothes. The house of the lord, the sanctity, we left. But it is a natural occurrence in churches in Greece and we understood we weren't appropriately cloth....More

Amazing and quite place with a breathtaking view. They give you pants/skirt if you're not dressed properly.
