Monastery of Areti

Found close to the village of Phourni, some 18 Kms distance from Aghios Nikolaos, Areti is a large, impressive monastery, with resident monks, making bread, olive oil and wine. The monastery is dedicated to Aghia Triadha (Holy Trinity), and its chapel to Aghios Lazarus. The water cisterns seen here, are somewhat necessary, as the area lacks springs or wells.
