Dafni Monastery Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Daphni Monastery plunges us into a flower-filled and peaceful version of the Middle Ages. Dedicated to the Dormition of the Virgin, this majestic Byzantine ensemble, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, was built in several stages using the stones of an ancient temple dedicated to Apollo which stood on the Sacred Way linking Athens to the sanctuary of Eleusis. The interior is magnificently decorated with late-11C mosaics on a gold background, remarkable for their delicate lines and harmonious colours.
