Saint Paul Monastery at Paranimfi
(1 Vote)

The former monastery of St. Paul (13-14th century) is located near the village Paranimfi near a spring. All around, we see traces of an ancient temple, which was looted. The church is a basilica with single nave and there are traces of frescoes. The doorway is carved from limestone in the Venetian Era. At the south end of the monastery yard, at the site of a today's warehouse, there was the monk's cell.
