Faneromeni

Monastery

stands on — or rather clings to — a spur of cliffs overlooking the large Bay of Mirabello in the northeast . It can be seen from the narrow coastal plain and the main road, though it’s partly camouflaged with the grey-brown rock.

Built in the 16th century, the Faneromeni monastery looks more like a defensive redoubt than a cloister, as it was hewn into the rock face as a defensive measure against the Ottoman Turk threat. The sea view from here is quite stunning. The heart of the still-operating monastery is the church hidden inside a cave, where every 15th of August the devout flock mark the Dormition of the Virgin Mary in a colourful and moving spectacle.
