Sunset at Kipouraio Monastery

See the most spectacular sunset on the island from the Kipouraio Monastery, which is built on top of a steep cliff 100 meters above the sea. The courtyard of the famous monastery, which lies on the west coast of Palikis Peninsular, 15 km from Lixouri, is one of the most romantic places to watch as the sun sinks into the Ionian Sea.

The monastery was founded in the 17th century by Paxinos Archimandrite Chrysantho Petropoulos, taking its name probably from the many gardens that surround it. Today, only one monk resides here, Father Eusebius, who will welcome you warmly and will show you the precious relics of the monastery.
