Sightseeing go back

Moni Martsalou (Martsalou Monastery)


Moni Martsalou has taken its name from the canyon Martsalos, which is about 2 kilometres long and ends in the Libyan Sea at a small, picturesque beach with palm trees. The Monastery includes a church dedicated to the Virgin Mary and built in a rock, and the caves surrounding the church. They are dated back to the first years of Christianism. The church also serves as a catacomb, where Christians would find sanctuary when chased by the then conquerors. Today, mass is said on the 15th August on the Assumption of the Virgin Mary.
