Saint George monastery, Finokalis
(4 votes)

The church of St. George at Finokalis was the temple of a nunnery founded in the 14th century, which seized its operation in the 1980s. Impressive is the slope of the walls of the temple, which would have collapsed by a landslide if not supported. The church bears valuable frescoes of the 14th century.

Apart from the temple, on the site there are the nuns’s cells. The nice courtyard hosts a feast on April 23, the feast day of St George.
