The Diary of a monk
Gain a fascinating insight into the everyday life of a 17th-century Greek Orthodox monk on this tour of a fortified Byzantine monastic complex. Built in the late 12th-early 13th century, Andromonastiro was for hundreds of years home to men who had chosen to devote themselves to contemplation and prayer.
Explore this impressively restored monastery and discover what it was like to live there more than 300 years ago: clothing, food, rituals, punishment, work and… perils. The tour concludes with an exclusively arranged treat of the finest local produce in the Synodikon hall, the very same hall where – centuries ago – travelers were received and offered hospitality.
