The Monastery of Faneromeni

Aghios Nikolaos is a traditional Greek destination with a long and interesting history. One great example of this rich history is the Monastery of Faneromeni, which gives its visitors a real chance to experience some of the cultural heritage that Greece is famous for.

The monastery is built into a hillside 450 metres over the Minoan city of Gournia, with a church inside a cave, providing staggering and breathtaking views from the top. Upon arrival, a monk welcomes visitors to the church. And with its tranquil air and numerous fascinating paintings, you'll be able to live and breathe the culture that surrounds you.

The route to the monastery is via a steep, winding road, but it's all made worthwhile once you see the beautiful mountain views and the impressive vistas over the Mirabello Bay below. The whole experience is both spiritual and enriching, leaving you longing to delve deeper into Greece's ancient history.
