Tour at St. John's Monastery

 A unique experience …23 km away from the island capital. After driving through pine forests, St.John monastery perched high on the cliff seems unreal and serene. We recommend that you climb the stairs (but be extremely cautious!) to enjoy the view that is breath-taking! You can also swim at the nearby beach.

The Daponte Family established this monastery which was built on the location of an older one that belonged Hatzistefani Ioanni Grammatiko’s father.He decided to restore it at his own expense after a miracle by Virgin Mary who rescued him from certain death when he was arrested by the Turk Officer.
