(1 Vote)

The monastery of Chrysopigi is built in a wooded ravine with plane trees by the village Pirgou but now does not operate. A spring is located in the courtyard of the monastery. Next to the church there are the remains of winepress and olive mill.

The monastery was independent in the Venetian Era, but after the revolution of 1821 it became a dependency of the monastery of St. George Gorgolainis. The earliest reference to the monastery was a document of 1577.
