A trip to the monastery of Moni Limonos is most often taken from the town of Kalloni, located on the main road connecting the north with the south of the island. In addition to its own large building surrounding a large green patio, the nearby surroundings of the monastery are also interesting, where there are a large number of other chapels and churches. Count on the tour around the watch. It is ideal to visit in the early evening, when the sun will not shine „in your eyes“.

The whole, very interesting atmosphere of this place is completed by a number of chapels and churches around the main building of the monastery. Far on the horizon, beyond the bay of Kalloni, you can see the most beautiful and second highest mountain on the island – Olympos.

Surroundings of the monastery

There are a really large number of churches here, so if you would like to explore all count on more than an hour. Moreover, the most beautiful view of them is as „from a height“ from the monastery as from the bottom.

However, the most beautiful view of the monastery is from the road rising further into the mountains. It is definitely worth going here or out and enjoying the beautiful panorama.
