  • Large isolated monastery, well kept with caretakers present. Shrine to a Saint who lost her way, saved from a dragon which was turned to stone and remains a rocky island just offshore. I understand it's the center of a big gathering about August(?).
  • I visited in mid July. The monastery has a large parking space for your car. It was very quiet. I was the only visitor at the time. The church is beautiful inside. In the church, you will see the bones of certain saints at exhibit. A guy at the entrance showed us into the church, as it kept locked ( I am guessing because there were no visitors). I didn't like that I had to pay for the sacred oil and holy water, which in other monasteries is free, to my knowledge. At the entrance just before you enter there is cold water from a water machine, which was very pleasant.
