  • A must-see in Thessaloniki! The monastery is wide and expansive with many places to relax and enjoy the views. Surroundings are well-maintained. The church/chapel is also beautiful.
  • Fascinating monastery with Byzantine frescoes. Exceptional view of the city. There are peacocks and deer in the garden, so something for kids to enjoy too.
