Tempi, with its natural beauty, combined with the exceptional artistic and architectural value of religious monuments, gives travelers and pilgrims from all over the world the opportunity to feel and experience their history.
The monasteries worth visiting in Tempi are
Holy Monastery of Nikodemos, Holy Monastery of St. Raphael, Holy Monastery of Metamorphoseos Sotiros and Holy Monastery of Panagia Glykofillousa
Holy Monastery of Metamorphoseos Sotiros
The Holy Monastery of Metamorphoseos Sotiros is located in a verdant area beside a deep gorge, between the villages of Pyrgetos, Rapsani and Krania.
After many years of devastation, Gerontissa Christonimfis, virtuous and well-known for her bravery and patience, settled in the monastery and stayed there for thirty years, until her sleeping on December 14, 2011.
Today, in the Holy Monastery live two monks and one trainee.
