This is no doubt amazing place with spectacular views and truly inspiring history. It's also true that if you in a hurry and don't have time to visit all of the monasteries this should be the one to go. There are museums where you can...More

Definitely the busiest monastery out of the 6. And honestly speaking, if you've been to a monastery, you've been to all of them. This is the most visited for its size and popularity but in my opinion, monastery Roussanou is better in so many ways....More

You can get to the parking lot at the entrance to the monastery. Then...the unforgettable experience begins. Climbing, the breathtaking view and the spiritual journey!
