Μonastery of the Archangel Michael Panormitis

One of the island’s most famous landmarks is the monastery of the Archangel Michael Panormitis on the southwest coast. Built in the early 18th century, it overlooks the bay bearing its name, in an awesome setting combining mountain and sea. What is more, it is dominated by the imposing built-in-1905 bell tower.

During the summer months, the monks accommodate visitors in the cells of the monastery for a token charge.
