This is a definate must see. You have the old one and the new one, inside the old there is a tunnel underground that you can go down if it's open, filled with silver and gold religious items the paintings are so colourful too. The new church wasn't open when we visited but we were told this too opens for the public. Plenty of photo opportunities but they do ask you not to take pictures inside the church. The grounds are beautiful and if you are lucky, you may see the priest sat outside the church. There are toilets here for the public too. Well worth seeing.

The chapel is only open for one day of the year. But the bells are plain to see, as is the rather more ancient belltower. Great views over Antisamos beach and along the coast. You'll need a car or motorbike to get here as it's located on a hill, up a steep winding road from Sami. Worth a photo-stop at the very least.

stunningly beautiful inside, amazing views and so peaceful - a car is needed though as it;s very steep and a long walk out of Sami

We visited this place by the chance of a wedding ceremony took place at the church of this monastery. The monastery is on a hill just above the bay of Sami and it is an important religious site for the locals. The location of the monastery offers incredible view to the blue green waters of Antisamos beach on one side and the towns of Sami and Agia Efimia on the other. The monastery was founded in the 18th century by two shepherds, who had found a miracle-working icon of Virgin Mary on that same spot in 1722. These two shepherds, Jacob and Symeon, then became monks and were the first monks to live in this monastery.
