The highest point of the island of Santorini, about 560 m above sea level. Ascend via a very narrow road from Pyrgos (about 4 miles approximately). The Monastery can be seen from any point on the island. We saw it before going on a documentary of Santorini on the National Geographic channel where we were advised not to miss a sunset. But luck was not with us. Just an hour before sunset the sky clouded over and was thoroughly covered. But the views from there are amazing. You can see across the island from end to end. We did not enter the monastery of men which is Byzantine, and I read it was worth a visit and I think it has an Orthodox museum.
