Monastery of Prophet Elias

At an altitude of 210 meters, 3km to the southeast of Karlovasi, hikers can follow a mild path to reach the monastery. The church of the monastery, built in 1739 by the monks Grigorios and Theofilos, replaced what was earlier a small chapel and few chambers. The Monastery has some attractive frescoes, an ornate marble floor featuring a depiction of Adam and Eve, and a carved wooden iconostasis.
