Beautiful flower lined shaded walks. Lovely views over the water. We visited and sat quietly in the church admiring the paintings and wall hangings. Well worth making the climb to visit this peaceful monastery.

It's worth the visit as part of your Paleokastritsa tour. There's a shop selling souvenirs at a very reasonable price too!

Winding walk up the hill with nice views. Pretty monastery which gets quite crowded. I don't think I would go to the area just to see it. I wasn't bothered by using their cover ups- very plain skirts and shawls

Yes, you can travel by bus at a very good price, Route A9 timetable at greenbuses.gr approximately hourly in Summer. Taxis readily available but naturally expensive in comparison.
