Women’s Monastery of Agios Nikolaos of Ano Vatheia

Women’s Monastery of Agios Nikolaos of Ano Vatheia

The women’s monastery of Agios Nikolaos lies in the village of Ano Vatheia approximately 5 klm. west of Aliveri. Built on the side of Koutali Hill, the monastery sits at an altitude of 430 m. and is famed for its incredible views out over the south Euboean Gulf. Some claim it was built by monks who were being chased by Turkish forces and founded the church on atop the ruins of an earlier church. Even before that, it seems likely that a sanctuary of Asclepius stood on the site. Today the church has been converted into a women’s monastery.
