Friendly welcoming and amazing monastery.

We visited here while staying at Kerkini Lake. This was one of the best welcomes we've had at a religious order in Greece. The nuns could not do enough to ensure our visit was enjoyable, before being ushered to have a coffee and cake in the visitors rest area.
English was spoken by a number of nuns which helped us to understand more of this lovely monastery.
There is some lovely detailing of the walls, floors etc, which we've not seen in other monasteries.
Well worth visiting if you are in this area.

Amongst those Byzantine temples, hidden in the mountainous area of the Serres region among fertile orchards full of perennial olive trees, oaks and, chestnut trees alike!
Since 1989, the monastery is creatively run by 50 nuns; most of them university graduates have worked really hard to get the whole site renovated in surprising way. The vistor will be amazed by the local bio products by the individual work and knowledge of the host nuns!
The temple is famous for its unique byzantine sacred icons and its tough resistance during hard war times.
Willing to show you around the museum, inform you on the long history of the monastery, cook for you and offer you a warm welcome and an ever lasting smile!
Surrounded by a lovely peaceful countryside, a unique destination for history and religious tourism as well as outdoor activities lovers!
A "must visit" destination for visitors for all ages, genders and religious principles.

The imposing Monastery of St. John the Baptist is unique in character and overlooks the lake Kerkini in Akritochori.

It follows the ritual of Mount Athos and is a nun monastery. If you are in the area, drop buy, light a candle and make your prayer.

The nuns are very welcoming and it is peaceful inside.
