On your way to Paleokastritsa don’t miss the monastery. It offers great view, gardens are great, local products are sold and there is a small museum as well.

Stunning surroundings. Refreshing. It is so peaceful and is kept us beautifully as possible. Grapes, flowers and herb growing everywhere, kittens playing. Great soul food. A place to worship and light a candle or just have a peek into a well preserved piece of culture/history...

This little old monastery has some spectacular views. Anyone who has been to Paleokastritsa knows how beautiful it is and this another great vantage point. We stopped by their little gift store and bought a Christmas ornament just to support the little church.
