AGIOS IOANNIS PRODROMOS

The monastery of Agios Ioannis Prodromos used to be a male monastery but from 1920 until today it is a women’s monastery.

It is only a few hundred meters away from the monastery of Agia Varvara on the mountain Palouki which stands tall on the back of the town of Skopelos, a serene place which is well taken care of by the nuns that live there.

Visitors can see the temple in the church which is made of wood and gold and is beautifully ornate with vines, animals and birds. Visitors can also see murals from the 14th century.

The monastery celebrates on the 24th of June.

Directions: From the town of Skopelos drive on the coastal road towards Mt Palouki. At the end of the road, turn left and follow the signs to Iera Moni Sotiros. Make sure that when you get to the fork on the road you keep to your right. Continue on the same road that eventually will turn into a dirt road. At the end of the asphalt you take a sharp left up the hill. In about a kilometer you will be at the monastery of Agia Varvara. After that the monastery of Agios Ioannis Prodromos is another 200 m. away. You can either drive there (about another minute) or walk (about 7 minutes)
