Our historic region

One of the most important and wonderful places of Greek Orthodoxy in Peloponnese is the Holy Monastery of Mega Spileo (Grand Cave) which is located under the shadow of great rock at 940 m height. The Monastery was established in 4th century by two monks. During its history it was destroyed five times by fires, Turks and in the last one in 1943 by German invaders. The name of the Monastery derivates from rocky complex of Chelmos mountain on which it is built above. Today, the renovated 8 floors built in rock monastery is rising on the mountains amazing the visitors.
