The famous Byzantine monastery of Panachrantou is in a 40 km distance from the Mare e Vista Epaminondas hotel. It is one of the most outstanding monasteries in Andros island. It is located in the area of Gerakones and because of the 750 m altitude it offers a wonderful view to the capital of Andros, Chora. The monastery was built by the Byzantine Emperor Nikiforos Fokas during the 10th century and contains beautiful wall paintings from the 18th century. Along with the icon of Panachrantou, another important and beautiful carved wood icon has been also conserved.

The Mare e Vista Epaminondas Hotel can arrange your transport to even the most remote monasteries, and the driver will happily wait and drive you back to the hotel.
