Just above the turning for Hosios
is the monastery of the Prophet Elijah, occupying a commanding position
above Loutraki and offering a superb view of the Gulf
. Το the left of the threshold of the monastery is a little chapel,
while above the main entrance is a painting of Our Lady “Wider than the
Heavens”. The southeast side is occupied by the catholicon, built in 1963.
Among other interesting buildings are the chapel of St John of Sinai
and the impressive cave of the Prophet Elijah, in greenish undressed stone.
