The famous monastery of “Ossios Loukas” is next in our itinerary.
Ossios Loukas is the largest surviving monastery from the Middle Byzantine period in Greece.  It was founded in the early 10th century by the hermit St. Loukas whose relics are kept in the monastery to this day.
The Katholikon has some of the best preserved Byzantine mosaics.

The spectacular mountain view from the monastery’s courtyard and the welcoming shade of the old pine trees make this an ideal place to enjoy a cup of Greek coffee and local sweets.
