Kera monastery

The Byzantine church of Panagia was constructed in the fourteenth century on the eastern bank of the Aksedianos tributary. When the weather conditions are right, certain waterfalls form inside the church’s grounds. The yard has some evident foundation remnants. They are the remains of a 7th century church that originally stood on the remnants of an earlier temple. Under the enormous, 600- year-old oak, there are benches for the visitor to take a break.
To accommodate the huge number of visitors to the monastery, a guest house was established there. There is currently a women’s weaving workshop for Agios Thomas weaving traditions. From 1935 to 1962, it served as a female convent; however, during the German occupation, it served as a guest home for locals. The monastery had been vacant over the years, but restoration efforts began on it in 1992.
