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.
