Paleokastro Monastery


Location: Ano Mera   

The Monastery of Paleokastro in Mykonos Cyclades: The Monastery of Paleokastro is located on a hill close to Ano Mera, the second village of Mykonos, in one of the greenest spots on the island. This is a nunnery (female monastery) and it dates from the 18th century. Its architecture is typical Cycladic and it took its name from the close remains of the Gizi Castle, which is also known as Paleokastro (meaning Old Castle in Greek).

The monastery is close to one of the two ancient towns of Mykonos. Some metres from there is a church dedicated to Saint Vlasis that distinguishes for its beautiful dovecote. You can also see a strange prehistoric tomb consisting of a giant granite rock that rises 3 m above the sea level.
