The courtyard of the church is off the main port area and not obvious from the outside. Entrance to the church is free. When you enter the church, immediately on the left is a... read more

The courtyard of the church is off the main port area and not obvious from the outside. Entrance to the church is free. When you enter the church, immediately on the left is a picture of Mary and Jesus surrounded by jewelry. I read that a number of miracles/good outcomes have been attributed to the picture and those who received... More

The monastery is small but exquisite, highly recommended as an attraction if you want to spend an hour or so soaking up a bit of the community culture and beliefs. Stunning decoration and unusual architecture. And best of all it's a fully functioning active part of the local community.

The cloisters square off on two tiers protecting the monastery in the centre. You'll see monuments to the navel heroes and rulers of Hydra from the 17th Century and inside the church you'll find one of... More

Unlike other Greek islands, Hydra can be done in one day tour when you stay in Athens... It will take 1.5 hrs flying cat (fast boat) from Piraeus, and once we arrive Hydra ports, it was an unforgetable feeling look at deep blue sea color with steps of building... I & my wife managed to hike to the hills &... More
