From the top of the small mountain in Paleokastritsa right next to the monastery that is situated on top you have a beautiful view across the stretched blue Ionian Sea. This Byzantine Monastery dates back to 1228, however the current complex, the cells of the monks and the yard date from the 18th century. The monastery has a small ecclesiastical museum with rare Byzantine icons, holy books and other relics. Inside the monastery, there works a traditional olive oil press.
