Shady, all green scenary. Monastry is very well preserved. The priest who welcomes you is a great, aged and well hearted man (you have to check when he is there). Bring an empty bottle to fill with the cold water of the spring!

Great quiet monastery and the way from Livadia is very rich in gorgeous scenes. We loved Tilos with its raw beauty untouched by tourism and will definitely go back.
