All reviews virgin mary bell tower mykonos town altar screen small museum on display worth a visit old port central square marble carvings monks live greek islands guided tour icons century built architecture
My wife, son, daughter and I visited the Monastery of Panayia Tourliani in August 2019. It was a beautiful church. It had a red dome, a belltower and many icons and statues inside. We were taken here as part of a guided tour. Near the...More
The altar and museum were eye-poppingly beautiful. The two disappointments were the lack of English explanations and the inability to understand the monastic experience and quarters. Still, this was a fun day and easily accessible by public bus from Mykonos town. Was interesting to walk...More
Beautiful stained glass detailings and marble carvings at the entrance give this place a unique aura. Add to it the fact that my tour guide told me there's only ONE surviving monk in the monastery now, as compared to several hundred till a few decades...More
This is a nice little church in a small town square. It was nice, not a day out though, but nice to stop off at.
The square did lack atmosphere, we were the only people there, but I imagine if busy it would be lovely.
Pretty little church in the middle of the town square in Ano Mera. Worth a visit if you are in the area. Don't know if I would make a special trip here to see it, but we combined it with a lunch at Taverna Vangelis...More
In the small quant village away from crazy tourist Mykonos town is a small beautiful church. Typical Greek church with towns of history and an image of Virgin Mary make this an interesting stop. Supposedly monks live there but our guide said she only saw...More

Hi CSegaMaki. We saw only inside the church and the surrounding area i.e. Ano Mera square. There was no indication anywhere that it was still running as an orphanage or, indeed a nursing home which apparently it also was in times gone by. That said, behind the church and attached to it are a lot of buildings. I (mistakenly?) thought those were accommodations for the priest(s) and/or administration. Perhaps this is where the look after children. Apologies, but I do not know.
Perhaps it might be worth posting your question on Trip Advisor's Mykonos Forum. There is a destination expert there who might be able to help.
