Monasteries

There are three monasteries on the island, all of which are extremely beautiful.

The Monastery of the Archangel Michael is a spectacular sight, clinging to the cliffside in the south of the island. Originally built in 1110 It is currently being expanded and a new chapel is being added. The convent has a renowned relic, known as the “Timio Ilo”, or The Holy Nail, a remnant from one of the nails of the crucifixion of Christ.
