  • I'm not religious. But this monastery is worth a visit. The best part is the museum inside. It is completely free. Though there are only limited rooms that you can see because most doors are closed...

  • The Mega Spileon monastery was serene and quiet. If you are travelling through this area, it is worth stopping because this location has a very rich history. Inside, you'll find an icon of Mary and Jesus that was discovered in the cave around which this monastery built a church. Please keep in mind that there is a semi-strict dress code in place if you wish to enter the sanctuary.
  • A must see. Well worth the 20 minute side trip off the national highway. See the cave with the natural spring from inside and all the church artifacts throughout the ages for €2. Limited parking available part way up the drive or across the street where some restaurants are located. Give yourself an hour to tour the site.
