Monastery of the Virgin at Savvathiana - Overview

It is situated in a verdant ravine of Vasilikos mountain nearby Rodia. It is dedicated to Agios Antonios, the protector of the Monks, in whose honour an old cave-like church was built. It is amongst the most significant historic monasteries where in the Turkish occupation period monks from Agios Savas (on Almyros beach) found refuge due to its inaccessible position. The Monastery was severely damaged during the Turkish attack in 1648, though in 1745 reconstruction work commenced.
