Buildings of the Monastery

  In the middle of the main Monastery is situated the imposing temple of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Temple and includes the Superior’s quarters, the cells of the Nuns, the Archontariki (reception room), the Chapel of St. Varvara with the holy water, the Museum, the Refectory, the workshops and related installations, while the whole Monastery complex is enclosed in walls (enceinte).
  Before getting to the Monastery one comes to the monument erected for the 172 monks slaughtered in 1507 by the Turks.
  At the external part of the wall there is a place of worship built with excellent quality marble and close to it another place of worship with a dome, under which there is holy water. Next to it stands the Cemetery with the small church of Saints Anarghiri.
  To the southeast corner of the Temple stands the Monastery’s bell-tower. Outside and over the walls to the east, stands an old wind mill, the "Blessed Virgin Mary Sedile" and a small place of worship.
