Feature: Visiting the Monasteries

Entry to each monastery is €3 and dress codes apply: no bare shoulders are allowed, men must wear trousers and women must wear skirts below the knee (wraparound skirts are generally provided at the entrances). Before planning your route, double-check days and opening hours. They vary by both the day and the hour. Between November and March a couple might be closed for two days, not one. Note that at least one monastery is closed each weekday. All six are open on weekends.

The following is a list of closures (from April through October) at the time of research.

  • Moni Agiou Stefanou Closed Monday
  • Moni Megalou Meteorou Closed Tuesday
  • Moni Agias Varvaras Rousanou Closed Wednesday
  • Moni Agias Triados Closed Thursday
  • Moni Varlaam Closed Friday
  • Moni Agiou Nikolaou Closed Friday
