The monastery of Panagia is built in the highest point of a green hill, on the right of the cove of Paleokastritsa. It is a building of Byzantine style dated from 1228. The small church of the monastery, the priest's cells and the yard were built in the 18th century. The monastery has a remarkable collection of byzantine icons, sacred books and other religious heirlooms. In its interior you will see a small traditional oil press.
The road leading to Paleokastritsa is full of cypresses, olive trees and many kinds of flowers. The view from the monastery is extraordinary. You can see the remains of the famous Angelokastro, built on the top of a hill in village Krini and the magnificent firths of Paleokastritsa that create a dreamy scenery.
