MONI AGIAS ANASTASSIAS FARMAKOLYTRIAS Monastery CHALKIDIKI

Overview

The monastery of Agia Anastasia Farmakolytria (St Anastasia the Curer) stands near Vassilika of Thessaloniki, at the foot of Adrianos, one of Mount Hortiatis's summits. It is said to have been founded by Leon the 6th in the 19th century, but this has not been cross-checked. In all probability, it was built in 1522 by St Theonas, who later became metropolitan bishop of Thessaloniki. During the Turkish domination, the monastery owned many acres of land but it was destroyed by the Turks during the Greek War of Independence of 1821 and was rebuilt from scratch in 1830. Today, it belongs to the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and honours St Anastasia on the 22nd of December.
