Overall, it is a beautiful building to discover.
Hidden gem. If you're into Christian mosaics like me, this is something to see. It"s a bit out of the way. I had to metro to agia marina, then bus to the psych hospital, then short walk. Watch the hou... more »
Beautiful cite which once was an asylum and a monastery now home to some cats and a turtle! The frescos are beautiful and the building speaks to you.. imagine the prayers and the cries.. may be both at the same time and the place becomes haunting and peaceful at the same time..
Beautiful place, a bit far to reach out of the city but accessible by bus which is included in the 5-day unlimited Athens public transport card. Not so crowded with tourists because of its remote location, but definitely worth a visit! Free entrance. The gate seems closed but opens upon ringing the bell (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 8:00-15:00) and someone comes to welcome you and tell you where it's allowed to go. You can visit the small church with its beautiful wall paintings and mosaics, and walk around the remainders of the rest of the monastery. Trip from the city center around 45 minutes each way, expect to spend around 30-60 minutes in the monastery.
