Monastery of the Birth of the Virgin Mary (Zourvas)

The monastery of the Birth of the Virgin Mary can be found on the plateau of Zourvas, located along the island’s eastern side. Reaching it requires taking a water taxi from Hydra’s port until reaching the small harbor of Limanaki (Lediza) which lies below the monastery. From there it’s a difficult hike, requiring 40-45 minutes and good stamina before reaching the entrance. The stunning landscape and views, however, are a fitting reward for visitors’ efforts.
