Monastery of Fragopidima

Monastery of Fragopidima

When a Frenchman jumped with his horse some 280 meters above sea level in trying to escape from the Ottomans and survived, this was a divine sign to build the Monastery. Fragopidima means Frankish Leap, and the Monastery is allied to Saint Nicholas (Agios Nikolaos) who protected the Frank. The monastery is a short picturesque drive from Pyrgos.
