Monastery of Agia Eleousa, Klissoura Canyon

Near Agrinio, the southern entrance of the Klisoura gorge or canyon boasts the rock-hewn monastery of Agia Eleousa. This is where Yiannis Gounaris, the hero who saved Mesolongi during its first siege by the Ottomans, lived in seclusion. Above the monastery, the water has sculpted the image of the virgin and a lamb.
