You must absolutely visit the Monasteri of Faneromeni as it is paradise. The monasteri itself is very well-preserved, very clean and the view is spectacular. It's very green, there's a wonderfull garden and a mini zoo.It's a must.

This monastery is very peaceful, not that much to see but I am glad I got to see it. Nice views with a little zoo. The monastery is free but closed between 2 pm till 4 pm.

The monastery and grounds are beautiful with fantastic views. No admission costs and welcoming to visitors. Only downside is the 'dinner lady' cotton robes for the ladies to cover shoulders and knees lol!
