Monastery of Panagia Kechria - Overview

  The church of Panagia lies in a lush green valley full of olive and pine trees overlooking the beautiful beach of Kechria. From here begins the uphill path that crosses ravines with old mills and ferns to reach the monastery of Kechria. The monastery, dedicated to the Dormition of Virgin Mary, was founded in the 16th century. Today, all that remains of the erstwhile monastic complex is the katholikon, richly decorated with frescoes on its interior walls. In its preserved form, the church dates back to the 18th century.
