SUMMERTIME 2012, SKAFIDIA MONASTERY, PELOPONNESE, S. GREECE #6935A

The Byzantine Monastery of the Virgin Mary of Skafidia, is located near the village of Skafidia in the prefecture of Ellis. It was built in the 10th century, collapsed in the earthquake of 1887, and was rebuilt in the Basilika style. An impressive medieval fortress surrounds the Monastery. Today it is run by a small community of nuns and is open to the puplic.
