There is only really the chapel to see at the site, although there is also a small bird aviary. There are also very good views of Thessaloniki and beyond. Suggest visiting this together with Osios David (the Latomou Monastery)

It is a trek up to the old town to get here - or get bus 23 - but the gardens are calm and peaceful and the whole place is very atmospheric
