The Low Monastery (Kato Monastiri) is the one encountered first when arriving from Rethymnon and it is dedicated to St. John the Baptist. Today it is deserted.
The Back Monastery (Piso Monastiri) is dedicated to St. John the Divine (Theologos).
Among the most precious heirlooms of the monastery is an icon of Christ ‘King of the Kings’, a work by icon painter Michael Prevelis (1750) and the icon of St. John the Divine (Theologos) (13th century), flanked by an eagle, the Evangelist’s emblem, on the left and the Holy Spirit on the right.
