Monastery Of Profitis Ilias - Review

Dedicated to the prophet Elijah, the Monastery of Profitis Ilias is a structural masterpiece whose sight generates awe as well as reverence. Dating back to 1711, this Monastery was of utmost importance to Santorini as well as the whole of Greece as it helped in disseminating intellectual and patriotic influence. During the time period between 1806 to 1845, this monastery used to run a school where Greek Language and Literature were taught. As you visit this monastery today, you will be able to see a museum that holds a significant collection of ecclesiastical items, books and ethnographic material. From local and Cretan portable icons to wooden sculptures and embroidery which dates back to 17th and 18th century, this museum holds everything of historic interest.
