this is a beautiful monastery within an amazing setting. if you get a chance try and attend the annual festival here. there is a bus here every sunday if you do not have transport. if you feel energetic there is also a path that you can walk back down to the fishing village of aghios andonis

Amazing views driving here, both accessible by moped and car. Amazing church set into the bedrock. Lovely people wanting to show you around and offered us to go to their festival on 26th June. All food provided for. Geologists beware, so much strata and metamorphism you want to stop and inspect!

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.

Nice bus ride to the monastery starting from Livadia passing Micro Chorio, Megalo Chorio and Agio Antonio. Beautiful scenery along the way with steep cliffs overlooking the sea. The monastery itself is rather small but has a stunning location up in the mountains. On our way back we got out at Filoxenia restaurant where we had an excellent lunch with... More

It is almost 10km narrow road from the port but it is worth visiting it.When the main road of the island ends you will be found in an oasis with full of trees and fresh cold natural water.

Not easy to access nor drive on the difficult cliffedge road but this trip offers breathtaking views of bays and mountains. Once there, take a deal breath and admire one of the oldest Byzantine church built in 1470, with its mosaics, holy icons and spectacular garden. Remember to drink of its water as they say it is holy water. On... More

A short visit to this holy place it's really worthy to enjoy the church and the icons, but also the spectacular garden. The water is considered has holy and is really tasty. Take breath in this great atmosphere and continue for a swim in Plaka beach which can is close by

The monastery is a pleasant place to visit but the bus journey alone is worth it. The bus driver was very careful in navigating the difficult cliff-edge road with great views to bays and mountains

You can go to this monastery by bus or car. You can admire the fine buildings and the flowers. The monks will offer you nice tasting bread to eat. There is alsom much else to see on this island, like the main village Livadia, the old village Mikró Chorió, and beautiful places along the coast.
