Built in the 11th AD, the Kaisariani Monastery is situated on the slopes of Mount Hymettos, around 5 kilometres from the city of Athens. The Monastery has an interesting history. The monastery was built over the ruins of a Roman temple which in turn was built over an ancient Greek one. Four columns of the ancient temple have survived and to this day support the dome of the monastery's church. The monastery walls are covered with 16th century paintings and frescoes. Around the courtyard on the monastery, one can find a mill, a bakery, a cafeteria and a bathhouse. The Kaisariani Monastery is also a starting point for hikes on Mount Hymettos.

  • Hello. I'm thinking about going to Athens, and am planning my trip. I'd like to go to the Kaisariani Monastry. But not on my own. Do you know of any tours that I can pay for one, not two?
