This retreat is located on the island of Innousses
and was established in 1962 by the Panagou and Katigos Pateras Family. The Monastery
exemplifies Byzantine architecture and its interior maintains religious wall painting
by the famous religious art painter, Fotis Kontoglou. The Annunciation of the
Virgin Mary maintains strict rules and regulations concerning its operation. There
are 17 nuns, most of which are young in age and occupy their time with religious
painting, knitting, sewing religious garments and gold embroidery.
