Monastery of the Prophet Elias

Tel: +30 23210 91360
  To the north of the village of Aghio Pnevma and facing the Holy Cross Monastery high up on a pine wooded hill, stands the Prophet Elijah Holy Monastery. The first temple was built in 1900 but over the time it was destroyed. Today's Katholikon is built according to the techniques used at Athos, while only two walls of the original are preserved.
  In 1990 a group of Nuns endeavored to found an organized Women’s Monastery restoring the ruins and building new edifices, that resulted in its present form. Today the Monastery houses 18 Nuns who deal with gold embroidered handicrafts, hagiography etc.). For the moment there is no possibility fro organized tourist groups to spend the night. The Chapel of Blessed Virgin Myrtidiotissa houses the miracle-working icon of Our Lady.
  Administratively, together with the Our Lady Visiani and Holy Cross Monasteries, the Monastery belongs to the Holy Metropolis of Serres. Its feast day is on 20 July to commemorate Prophet Elijah (important festivities) and on 24 September to commemorate Our Lady Myrtidiotissa.

  At the village Aghio Pnevma, some fifteen km form the city of Serres at the foothill of Mount Menoikion, stands the Holy Cross Holy Monastery. The Monastery is built on the higher slope of a hill, with a panoramic view over the valley and the city of Serres, in a pine wooded area.
  Since 1964 proprietors of the Monastery, under the form of a Chapel, are the inhabitants of the village. The Monastery had no Nuns till the year 1985 but today (1997) it houses three Nuns who with personal efforts have succeeded in giving the Monastery its present form (Katholikon i.e. main church, Archontariki i.e. reception room, handicraft exhibition, guest houses, cells). The Monastery can accommodate up to 10-12 persons. The Hagiographies are all modern except four icons that date back 100 years. A holy choral service takes place every Sunday. The feast day of the Monastery is on 14 September to commemorate the Raising of the Holy Cross.
