St. John's Monastery in Chora had somewhat of a magical feel to it. The tour itself wasn't all that long and you couldn't see much of the Monastery, but there's such a calm and peaceful energy about this place. You can walk around the town of Chora, visit some of the shops, check out the local artists (incredibly talented by the way), eat some fantastic food and drink some great wine, no matter where you are in Chora and around the Monastery, it's just peaceful. There some pretty amazing views and the architecture is like none other. We spent some time conversing with one of the monks as he blessed a prayer cloth for us. People are amazingly friendly. We met a local artist who produced phenomenal pieces. She took us up the road a bit to a great restaurant with fantastic views with the nicest owners who talked to us about local history, etc. It was honestly my favorite place on our honeymoon visit.
