One of the best historical places to visit in Mykonos. Peaceful, awe, picturesque! This monastery is a part of the island's history. There are two chapels. The temple and the icons are made by fine artists.

Entrance fee at 1 euro. 從市区开車到 Monastery of Paleokastro 需要大约20分钟。 𨒂途風景还不錯,开車兜風很舒服。 延路有加油站好吃的餐廳 但是要小心彎延的山路。 這裡參觀需要門票1€..

Inside the monastery was beautiful, so much to look at. A monk let me take a picture of him while touring the court yard.
