Monastery of St. Nicholas at Malagari - Overview

  St Nicholas “the Younger”, at the spot called Malagari near Perachora, seems likely to be the oldest Byzantine monument in the area, since it was built in the tenth or eleventh century. Experts have quite rightly described its outstanding wall paintings as historic treasures of the greatest value. In earlier times, the monastery had a full complement of monks, and even today the beauty of the scenery does much to uplift the spirits of pilgrims.
