Location: Town

The Monastery of Agia Efpraxia is an important religious sight in Hydra. It is a convent originally built in 1865 along with a small main church. The monastery is surrounded by plane trees and offers a marvelous view. Today, only a few nuns live in this monastery and take care of the building. They also run a small embroidery workshop.

The Monastery of Agia Efpraxia is located atop a hill above the town, at an altitude of 500 meters. It is found very close to the Monastery of Prophet Elias which is also worthy of a visit.

Visitors can go to the monastery on foot following a hiking trail from Hydra Town or Vlichos. The distance is about 40 minutes on foot from Hydra Town; alternatively, you can ride a donkey.
