Monastery of Agios Georgios

The history of the Monastery of Agios Georgios is lost in the depths of the centuries.

The Monastery was moved to its current location, from an area located just above the Baths of Edipsos. In the place where the old Monastery existed, today there is a small church in the name of Agios Georgios.

The location of the Monastery of the Suns is a site of stunning beauty. The travelers of the 19th century refer to the many ancient remains of buildings that existed in the area, identifying the place with that of the Oracle of Selinudi Apollo to which Strabo refers (X, 445). We do not know the exact date of foundation of the Monastery.
