Women’s Monastery of Mantzari in Oxylithos

Women’s Monastery of Mantzari in Oxylithos

Evia’s second-oldest monastery can be found in the village of Oxylithos 7 klm. south of Kymi. Though the date of its foundation is unknown, the church is mentioned in archives dating back to the early 16th century AD. What is certain is that it had amassed a fortune in land stretching as far as Styra in southern Evia. Its monks also appear to have fought against the Turks during the revolution alongside the famous Evian general, N. Kriezotis. Today it is home to a handful of nuns.
