Discover the Magnificent Sumela Monastery – A Marvel of Greek Architecture
Are you ready to embark on a journey to witness an architectural marvel secreted within the rugged stone cliffs? Sumela Monastery is your gateway to an ancient monastic complex etched into the Altmdere Valley’s rocky terrain. With its roots dating back to 385 AD and spanning all the way to the 19th century, this extraordinary structure stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of human craftsmanship.
The first two rooms of the monastery were painstakingly carved into the rock by the dedicated hands of Barnabas, a monk from Athens, and his nephew Sophronios. Today, Sumela Monastery stands as a magnificent jewel in Greek culture, waiting for your visit!
