The Cloister of Aghion Pateron (The Holy Fathers)
 

The Cloister of Aghion Pateron

 
The Cloister of Aghion Pateron was built on the site of the cave in which lived three ascetics who later became instrumental in the founding of Nea Moni Monastery. In 1688 the cave was given to the monk Jeremiah of Crete, who reconstructed it into a church and cells. In 1868, after Jeremiah’s death, the holy monk Pahomios from the village of Elata, asked for the buildings which he converted into the Iargest monastic center on the island.
Hagiography flourished there in 1900. Today there are four monks at the cloister.
