Monastery of Agios Vissarionas – Holy Steps

HIn this trip to the holy paths of Pyli, we find the Monastery of Agios Vissarion or “Monastery of Savior of the Great Gates” as it is called, due to its connection with the monastery of Porta-Panagia. It was founded between the years 1527–1535, on the site of the ruins of a monastery of the 13th century dedicated to Christ. The founder of the monastery is Agios Vissarion A’, the Bishop of Larissa, who came from the nearest village and whose action through the construction of roads contributed to a great extent to the development of the everyday life of its residents. The monastery was looted by conquerors; however, its emblematic character was restored. Today, it preserves the skull of Agios Vissarion and is forbidden for women.
