Inside you find gleaming whitewashed walls and you will pass lemon trees and a carefully tended flower garden on the way to the chapel which has a fine collection of icons and religious paintings. The monastery inhabited by monks, was founded in 1288, but the present day complex was erected in the 18th century and offers unrivalled views of the area.
