Monastery of Voulkano

Also known as Vourkano, this monastery is located on one of the holiest areas of ancient times. It is placed on a mountain on the ancient site of Ithomi, standing out and looking all over the plains. Monks abandoned it because of its difficult access and exposure to too much sun, cold and wind during the seasons. The nave is of noteworthy design by the Moschos brothers in 1608. Nearby are ruins of the ancient temple of Zeus were animal and maybe even human sacrifices took place.
