Monastery of Prophet Elias - Iliovounia

  The holy monastery of Prophet Helias is built on a small plateau between the summits of the mountains of Heliovounia, hidden by the surrounding plain, between the villages N. Kerasounta and Stefani.
  From an inscription on the east wall of the church we are informed that it was renovated in 1620 - which means that it was built earlier.
  The present church was built in 1852-53, according to several inscriptions, while the stone-curved iconostasis was brought to completion in 1876 and the icons in 1875. Most of the frescoes of the interior decoration of the church were made in 1878. The monastery was destroyed during the Greek-Turkish war in 1897, while in July in 1944 the Germans set on fire the cells.
  In 1987 a new monastery of Prophet Helias and St. John was founded near the village Flamboura.
  On the 26th of November 1991, the consecration of the New Monastery took place, in 1992 the consecration of the church of Osios Paisios occurred and in 1996 the consecration of the church of Agios Prodromos took place.
