The road climbs to the clouds and ends into the monastery’s gate. The nature arround is impressive - rocks and a stunning view from the mountain top. The church is closed and the beautiful garden and whole monastery complex are deserted.

Monastery is 10 km away to Eristos, arrived by a narrow road, located on a hill on the northwest of the island. It was built on the place of Apollon Temple had before in 1470. It looks like a fortress from outside. The shadows of the centenary trees are covering its garden. We could not see the entire place due to renovation works continue. There is a fountain flowing pressurised water at the entrance. The view covered with falling clouds. It was like Black Sea view. The neighborhood is very green and steep. The monastery has hosting crowded celebrations on between 25-27th of July every year held in the honor of Saint Panteleimon. The beverages paid in these celebrations. Goat and potato food distributed to the visitors as free. There were a vehicle queue as a few kilometers on the road towards to monastery because of crowd.

There is a great walk from the monastery which is RELATIVELY easy--not as gruelling as the one back to Eristos. Walk back down the road--go UP on the bus--I'm not that much of a masochist!!--there is a path about 200 meters along--sort of "steps" up to it, and a fallen signpost. Then follow your nose--two really steep bits--but not heart attack territory. Benches to sit and look at the view as you reach the saddle, then down hill all the way. Lunch at Ag Andonis--then back on the bus--perfect!

Tuesday 11th June and we drove the 14 kilometres from Lavadia to visit the Monastery at Agios Pandeleimonas, there certainly was some dramatic and impressive scenery along the steep way up. We parked up outside the Monastery and stood for a monument to take in the breathtaking views. We entered in to the grounds of the Monastery through the gates. Sadly when we visited the Church inside was closed for restoration and repair work and we were not able to go inside. It looks like the Church has been closed for some time and likely to be for a while yet. We stuck our heads inside the Church, it was full of scaffolding and ladders, however, we did get a brief glimpse of some of the paintwork on the ceiling. Not being able to enter the Church did not detract from how much we enjoyed our visit here and walking around the grounds and other buildings. When we visited were the only 2 visitors, so we wandered around at our own pace. We climbed to the highest point of the Monastery, where there was a terrace with outstanding views. By the entrance gate to the Monastery, and running along side it, is the start of the almost 6 kilometres walk to Eristos.

There is nowhere further to go from Livadia than to the monastery of Agios Pandeleimonas in the northwest of the island. It is a distance of 14km by road with the last stretch being quite narrow and spectacular high up on a very steep and rocky hillside There is also a not very easy path from Eristos Beach towards the monastery over 6km of rugged terrain. The monastery lies in a small valley at an altitude of 270m asl. Its location must have been selected because of the water found here. There is still today a spring to the left of the outer entrance gate, with flowing water, which is considered to be very healthy. Unfortunately there are often dozens of oriental hornets around it, so many visitors might skip this offer of a healthy sip.. In the old days the pirates didn't spare religious sites on their forays, so the monks fortified their monastic buildings all over the Aegean. Here too one encounters first a defensive tower and it is through a passage in it that one enters the monastery proper. As so often in the Dodecanese one will find a lovely courtyard with a floor mosaic made from black and white pebbles. The not very big, but pretty church was open, when I visited. From the icons, especially the 'Proskinitari', one can see that Agios Panteleimon is venerated here, the physician and patron saint of Tilos. The monastery is considered to be one of the most important in the Dodecanese, together with Panormitis on Symi, the Panagia Spiliani on Nisyros and the famous St.John the Evangelist monastery on Patmos. There was one monk around, when I passed by in May, but I didn't get a chance to speak to him. What I especially also enjoyed here was the rich vegetation, with oriental plane trees, with pines, cypresses and walnut trees.
