Monastery of Kremasti

Monastery of Kremasti

20km from Olympia

It stands at an imposing height and it impresses with its size as it appears to be hanging from the rocky mountainside. From the church’s balcony the visitor can see all the beauty which the county of Ilia offers all the way up to the forest of Foloi as well as the magnificent Erimanthos. 800 years ago, residents of the region would see a light through a hole of a rock. There they hung with a rope someone, who found the picture of the Virgin Mary hovering above. Visitors can go to the monastery from the village of Lanthi or from the village of Lampeti (approx. 8km). In both cases the landscape is unbelievably beautiful.
