You will not see Apollo and The Corycian nymphs on Mount Parnassus, from the slopes of Mount Helicon. But you will find…

The Monastery of Ossios Loukas, which was founded in the 10th century A.D. by Venerable, who was also known as St. Luke, not the Evangelist of the Gospel of Saint Luke, but a hermit who died in 953.

It is said that St. Luke died at age 84, here in Boeotia. The main shrine of the monastery is the tomb of St. Luke, originally situated in the vault, but later placed at the juncture of the two churches.
