Monastery of the Holy Forty Martyrs

Sights of Interest / Churches & Monasteries


The Monastery of the Holy Forty Martyrs is considered a monument in the region of Therapnes as it transposed Chrysafa into a spiritual center and heightened its status to a town, and even more so, an ‘honorable land’, with its peak of prosperity in the 17th century. The original monastery was established in the early 14th century, with its monastic cells wedged in rocks and its cathedral tucked in a cave.
