This place is definitely worth a detour. Doesn't look very special from the outside but amazing once inside. We were so impresed that we donated some money towards its further development. Please go and visit, you won't regret it !

A historical site with a rebuilt old monastery and some derelict olive oil presses that used to be worked by the religious community here

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.

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.
