Hypapante monastery at Habatha
(3 votes)

The small monastery of Hypapante (Presentation of Jesus at the Temple) operated at the remote site of Habatha, province Kissamos, with spectacular views to the surrounding areas.

We can still discern remnants of monk cells and caves where they lived. Above the church, we see the cavernous chapel of Transfiguration of the Christ, accessed only on foot.

Hypapante church celebrates on February 2, then a feast takes place.
