Monastery of Agios Giorgios Vasson, near Aperi

Discover the largest and oldest monastery on the island, built in 1857. Its cross-shaped architecture is interesting to admire, but so is the gorgeous view to the Mediterranean Sea.

Many years ago the monastery operated as a school and an orphanage. Today it contains a rich library with religious works. The grounds offer a peaceful place for contemplation. If you’re going to explore the center of the island towards Volada and Othos, do stop by Aperi for a visit to the monastery, just 2 kilometers away.
