In einer von der Zeit unberührten Landschaft entdecken Sie zwei prächtige byzantinische Kirchen, die mit Fresken und Mosaiken verziert sind, mit ihrem charakteristischen goldenen Hintergrund (10.-11. Jahrhundert n. Chr.)
Kloster Osios Loukas
Osios Loukas MonasteryIn a landscape untouched by time, you will discover two magnificent Byzantine churches decorated with frescoes and mosaics, with their characteristic golden background (10-11th century AD). The Byzantine abundance of the monastery still functioning today was recently brought to light due to a successful restoration project. The monastery was founded around the middle of the 10th century AD by the monk Loukás from Stýri. His relics are exhibited in the Katholicon (main church of the monastery). They were stolen by the Crusaders during the 13th AD and kept in the Vatican for centuries.
The mountain is also the home for many types of wild animals such as wolves, foxes, ferrets, weasels, squirrels, eagles, vultures, hawks, wild boards, snakes and many more.
