The route to the Machairas Monastery,through the wood ,puts you to a calm, peaceful mood.Avoid going on a Sunday or during summer months.Surprising big number of young monks there.

This is a beautiful monastery of Christian Orthodox religion. It is located in beautiful surroundings on a mountain among forests. The monastery is of great religious and historical value. I recommend visiting this monastery.

This is a nice place to visit. Not only has a great view below, but the monastery it self is beautiful. The Christian Icons, the inside of the church, and the priests and monks, gives you peace in heart and soul.
