Even though the road is a bit tricky to get there, the environment, the calmness, the views, everything compensates the effort to visit.

Worth getting there!

this monastery is a wonderfully calm place with an exceptional view - certainly worth the detour on a car trip across the island

Worth a drive up a winding road with some great views. Quiet and not a lot of people when we were there. Church was closed but we walked around the courtyard. Worth an hour visit including the drive. Not for small kids.

Perched on the top of a hill on the island is this beautiful old monastery with a commanding view of the sea below. We arrived at about 5pm and the gates were open and the only things moving were a few cats and goats which added to the calm and soothing feel of the place. The main church was closed but we walked around the small,picturesque courtyard. This monastery is worth a visit for its location and the 30mins you would need to walk around.

It was well worth the drive out to this monastery. We have been to many monasteries in Greece but this one was very simple, peaceful and lovely. It was one of the highlights of Kea. It also seems to be lived in

Pretty, windy drive up to the Monastery, it’s a tranquil place in a gorgeous hilltop location. In the sunshine it was simple but stunning. Well worth a visit.

The lovely Panagia Kastriani Monastery is located on the northern side of the island, about 10 km from Loulida, the capital of Kea. Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the monastery was named Kastriani since it was built on Kastri hill. According to the local tradition, around 1700 AD, some shepherds saw a light on top of Kastri hill and when they climbed up, they found a icon of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. On this spot (they considered that the Virgin Mary herself chose that site), they built a small church that survives till today (lower level). In 1912, a larger church was built (upper level). The whole complex was done by gifts and offerings of the faithful people. Besides the bell tower, new structures have been added to the monastery's complex, such as rooms for guests, dining room, cells and more. Overall, this is a quaint and peaceful monastery, beautifully painted in blue and white. Its best feature is the breathtaking view to the Aegean Sea and the island of Andros. Wonderful place to visit. Highly recommended.
