One of the most beautiful religious sites of the island, built in the 12-13 centuries in the Middle Ages architectural style and serves as home for monks.
Moni Thari Monastery is located near the village of Laerma. It is reliably covered on in the dense forest and it may not be noticed from the road. This location of the monastery is easy to explain: during its construction was a high threat of piracy so it was hidden this way.
Inside the main church of the monastery you can find beautiful frescos since the Middle Ages, that have a great historical value. There are no tours around the monastery, but some monks are happy to talk about the history of this place. Near the monastery you can find a shop with souvenirs and products made by the monks - wine and mountain tea.
