Religious/Spiritual tour in Argolida

Due to their sheer age, most of the monasteries and many of the churches in this area are hauntingly beautiful, having survived for hundreds of years and through tough times. They vary widely in their architecture and location, but all have a magical spiritual aura about them.


In the municipality of Nea Tiryns, the Monastery of Agios Dimitrios Karakala originally dates from the 11th century, although it can look quite modern on the outside.

One of the nicest monasteries in the Peloponnese, now deserted. It has been built right on the edge of a gorge with the main church constructed upon a huge rock.

The Monastery of Agios Theodosios in the Municipality of Midea dates from the 10th century, even if the structure built around it seems more recent. Midea also has the 12th century austere yet interesting Church of the Dormition of the Virgin.

A relatively young monastery that looks quite mysterious is that of Avgo dating from the 17th century and perched against the cliffs in the municipality of Kranidi.

Between Nafplio and Epidaurus, there is the classical-looking Monastery of Ayia Moni from the 12th century. This beautiful old monastery has a clear water spring and a small textile workshop.

In the municipality of Hermione lies the Monastery of Ayii Anargiri from the 11th century. A venerable ecclesiastical community with very old brick 'school-like' buildings surrounding a church in the middle of the valley.
