We drove up and thought that it was closed but you can open the gate. There is a small entrance fee per person. It is impressive that the structures of the olive oil factory are still standing.

A must stop on the hike from Vamos the beach at Gregorapolis. For a small fee you can explore the monastery, that supported it self with olive oil which was pressed there.

A must see, pretty near the beautiful village of Vamos. The old olive mill offers extraordinary landscapes to spend some nice time there.

We had a Olive and Wine tour organised by Vamos Tourist office and also visited this Monastery and the ruins of the old olive press. Our guide George told a lot about the history of this place.

We walked to this monastery from our digs in Vamos so overall the walk and the visit was a delight. The monastery itself is quite basic but the site is very peaceful and pretty.

The monastery dates back to 1600 but was destroyed in 1923. It was restored to a working monastery in 1996. I wondered round the pretty little courtyard listening to the morning service that was emanating from the church. Beyond the courtyard and church there are...More
