Ypapanti Monastery

The Monastery of Ypapanti, which is currently unsettled, belongs to the Great Meteoro Monastery, which is the biggest one.

Fully constructed inside a large cavity of a rock, this monastery is very indicative of its kind, compared to the ones that are usually seen on the peaks of rocks. A monk under the name of Nilos, in the year 1367 AD, along with another monk named Cyprianus became the founders and the owners of the monastery. It was destroyed in 1809, when the local rebel and hero Papathymios Vlahavas was arrested here by the Turkish army of Ali Pasha. It has recently been restored, however it remains closed. The pathway to this monastery is a very simple and pleasant one.
