Monastery of Saints Anargyri
 

Mosaic floor inside the monastery

 
This was built circa 1639. In past years many people, particularly those with mental problems, came to the monastery to draw on the healing energies of the miraculous saints in whose name the chapel was built. (The Anargyri were medical doctors in their lifetime.)
According to legend, the number of nuns always remained static at 28. Whenever it reached 29, a nun would die; thus the number remained always the same. After the death of Sister Filothei in 1987, the monastery ceased to function. In 1995 plans were in order for the establishment of an ecclesiastical high school on the premises.
