I visited this monastery, built originally in 14th Century, as I was visiting the nearby town of Kleisoura. There's a lot of building going on and has rather lavish new public lavatories. You are not allowed to take any photographs. Entrance is free and a nun will accompany you throughout your visit. As a tourist, you are only allowed to see the church and the shop. The church is fascinating and well worth a visit. Some frescos date from 17th Century, the series on the back gallery being particularly interesting. You can also light a candle and say a prayer. The shop seemed to be stocked with books and clothes for children, as well as religious items. The woods round about are also worth a visit. There's a chapel there containing the tomb of a recent local saint. There are also the most wonderful wild orchids nearby.

The Moni Panagias Monastery is a well preserved monastery beween the village of Kleisoura and Variko, Visitors should be appropriately attired (no shorts, no pants for women, wrap around skirts available if you are not properly dressed). There is a small gift shop with religious items, and ocassionally some jams. The water is cold and refreshing. There is a path up the mountain that leads to the Holy Trinity church ,good walking/hiking shoes recommended. Taverns (Arhontiko, Mokrini) and Cafeterias(Emeis kai Emeis, Hriskos), and coffee shops in Variko. Hotel (Terelidis) 3km from Variko.
