B) SAINT PATAPIOS MONASTERY
At a location of breathtaking view, on a steep slope of Gerania Mountains, at an altitude of 650 meters, lies Saint Patapios monastery. The monastery is established in a building complex, which constitutes an extension of the ancient hermitage of the 12th century. The monastery was founded in 1952 and extended around the hermitage through labors and sacrifices by Fr. Nectarios Marmarinos, the Chancellor of the Holy Metropolis of Corinth. The view and its physical and religious beauty rewards the visitor. Today, it functions as a convent with significant charitable and social work, such as the operation of a women’s nursing home.
The monastery of St. Patapios is an attraction for visitors mainly because of the three full-length murals found in the cave where the relics of St. Patapios are. The body is in a closed casket with glass, dressed in monastic robe with head and face cover. The only visible part is his right hand, while the coffin opens and the cover off his face is lifted every December 8th, the day honouring his memory.
