Monasteries

MEGA SPILEO The monastery of Mega Spileo (Large Cave) is the oldest monastery in Greece. It was founded in 362 and built over a large cave at the base of a huge cliff, hence the name Mega Spileo, at an altitude of 1km. It has been destroyed several times over the years due to war and fire. The last time was 1934, when a gunpowder storage left over from the revolution of independence in 1821  exploded. In 1943, the Nazis pushed 22 monks off a cliff to their deaths.
