Makralexi Holy Monastery

Makralexi Holy Monastery

Dedicated to the Dormition of the Virgin Mary, this monastery features some impressive wall frescoes and paintings throughout. It was once a complex of buildings, though now only the main temple area exists, dating back to 1585. However, local legends place its original foundation as far back as the 7th century, under the rule of Emperor Constantine the 4th.
