Beautiful and interesting old monastery. Best to get there early in the morning before the coaches arrive if possible. Excellent museum with some extraordinary old icons.

I liked the place. It has a good vibe. I liked the ancient icons. Also you should try the local wine, the balsamic vinegar and some sweets. Delicious.
