Agios Georgios Vrachassiotis Monastery

The Monastery of Agios Georgios Vrachassiotis flourished during the Venetian occupation. The Monastery’s katholikon has two aisles. The northern and oldest aisle is dedicated to Agios Georgios and has frescoes dating back to the 15th century. In 1558 the church’s bell tower was constructed on its western side, and in 1592 the southern aisle was added and dedicated to Agios Dimitrios.
