"On the top of a high cliff overlooking Tsambika beach and Kolympia lies an old Monastery. After driving uphill for a while you arrive at a parking from where you have to walk the last 300 steps. They've actually written how many steps you've taken on the steps. There is a belief that women unable to get pregnant that comes here by some kind of miracle afterwards are able to. The views are amazing and well worth the effort. There is also a newer monastery and church closer to the road."
