Panagia Deligara monastery
(1 Vote)

The monastery of Panagia Deligara, Ligaria or Ligariotissa operated at the site that we meet today the church of Panagia (Our Lady) near Ligaria Beach. The monastery is mentioned in a document of 1610 as Panagia Deligara.

The present church and the church yard are newer buildings, apparently built on the ruins of this monastery. Only part of an old reinforcing arch (sfendonio) is still visible inside the church.
