MONI TAXIARCHON Monastery SERIFOS

Overview

  In the northeast part of Serifos, near the village of Galini, about 1 kilometer from Panagia is the Monastery of the Taxiarches, dedicated to the patrons of the island, the Archangels Michael and Gabriel. Founded around 1600, it is built like a fortress. The church contains a few of the frescoes that once decorated it, a marble and wood iconostasis, some memorable icons (the one of the archangels having been brought from Cyprus), a marble floor and an elegant dome. The monastery also has a superb collection of ecclesiastical treasures, including a holy codex. It is situated conveniently near the beach of Platys Yialos.
