This working monastery is a bit of a hidden gem. It's a bit off the main road to/from Delphi, but really worth the short detour. The main attraction are two Byzantine churches, side by side, one about 1,000 years old and the other about 900...More

We stopped on the way back from Delphi Unbelievable mosaics in the church. A truly holy place. My daughters were wearing running shorts so they were given skirts for modesty. Well worth the stop to soak in the views

The Hosios Loukas Monastery is a stunningly beautiful monastic complex, clearly worth the hour or so it takes to visit it.
