Monastery of Our Lady of Vrestenitissa

Sights of Interest / Churches & Monasteries


The eminently remarkable Christian monument of Vresthena, not far from the large village itself, is the Monastery of Our Lady of Vrestenitissa. Its location is so idyllic and lush that it was intentionally chosen as the site of the monastery dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, which at some point appropriately took on the title of Vrestenitissa.
