The Monastery of Prophet Elias in Samos, Greece: The Monastery of Prophet Elias lies in western Samos at an altitude of 210 meters, 3 km to the southeast of Karlovasi. The church of the monastery, built in 1739 by the monk Grigorios, replaced a small chapel and few chambers that existed earlier on that site. The Monastery has some beautiful wall paintings, many ecclesiastical utensils and a wooden carved icon-screen. If you are a trekker, have in mind that there is a moderate trekking path that leads to the Monastery.
