Agios Nectarios

Agios Nectarios is home to the island’s patron saint who built the church and lived in the monastery. He died in 1920 and was canonized in 1961 (remarkably soon by Orthodox standards). The monastery is positively enormous and contains two tall bell towers as well as dozens of arches and domes surrounded with windows.
