An old place with history and some mystic

Myukonos is plenty of churchs and monasteries, but in this place you can see a enormous quantity of marble over the walls, something you can't imagine outside Acropolis.

Our guide told us a lot about the history and the decor inside. There are not many seats (back in the day, people would stand for an hour or so at worship services) so be aware that you may be standing for awhile if you have a guide. Pretty little courtyard, quiet and peaceful.

Our ship, the MS Rotterdam, docked in Corfu (Kerkira) Greece in Mid November, 2016. We had planned to take a Hop on Hop off bus but found that for about the same price, the four of us could rent a taxi with an English speaking driver and tour the entire island for 5 hours (although he had asked for 80...

We only went to the Monastery as on our way back to our hotel after a day out and was recommended in the guide book. Not really worth making a special trip to see.

We took a morning bus ride from our hotel to the Monastery. It was small & we were done seeing everything within half an hour. We then looked at the few shops in the square. It was too early for lunch & the next bus to return was not for another few hours so we took a taxi back to... More

The Monastery of Panayia Tourliani is very close to the restaurant that the cruise ship tours take their passengers to eat. It is worth a little pop-in. A quiet oasis.

The monastery was smaller than we had anticipated, but the location was lovely because it was surrounded with flowers and trees.

Although rated as average the monastery is nice to visit but only as part of a tour as it is a trek to get there. Best on a guided tour so you get to know the history. the views are however very good, local food at town square basic but good value.

It is not worth the trip but, if you pass by, it is a pleasant stop. Small church, there is not much to see but it speaks of a long religious tradition that continues till now. Entrance costs 1 Euro.
