Panagia (Virgin Mary) Vigliotissa is a uninhabited monastery near Voulismeni at position Vigli. The monastery was dedicated to the Nativity of Mary (September 8). The church has been fully restored and the surrounding area has been transformed into a beautiful small park with a statue dedicated to Mother.

An inscription at the entrance mentions the date 1605, when the church was probably repaired. There are excellent frescoes of the 14th century. Apart from the church and a cistern, no other buildings of the complex have survived.
