St Nicholas' Monastery Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

This monastery devoted to St Nicholas dating from the 15C, or even from the 13C or 14C, sits atop a narrow peak to which it appears to be joined. At the top of the stairs is the refectory, then the catholicon (16C), a narrow church capped with a windowless dome; the monks' cells are on the upper floor. Note the highly expressive frescoes, masterpieces of harmony by Theophanes the Cretan (16C), in particular the Virgin and Child and the Last Judgement.
