Monastery of Aghios Georgios

Monastery of Aghios Georgios

Situated next to the national road, a monastery has existed here since Byzantine times, though what we see here, was founded in 1961, on the site of another monastery, abandoned in the 19th century. If you look across to the mountain opposite, you’ll see a wooden cross, which marks the spot at which hermits have lived and died for centuries.
