Agios Georgios Valsamitis

This wonderful little monastery is built in the site of an ancient water oracle. James Theodore Bent, after an 1884 visit, noted that water was collected in a tumbler and the petitioner’s fortunes were then predicted. Today, the monastery is too often overlooked by visitors and is tended by Sister Eirini, who is very hospitable, speaks great English and can tell the history of the place to those visiting it.
