Monastery of Prophitis Ilias

The Holy Monastery of Proitis Ilias is located near the village of Pyrgos, at the highest point of Santorini, offering  a unique view to the whole island.
Today, the monastery only has a few monks living in it. However, visits are allowed to women as well. 

Apart from the Catholicon (the main church of christian orthodox monasteries), you can also see various exhibits of folk and ecclesiastical interest, kept at the monastery’s museum, and get introduced with a different side of Santorini.
