The Holy Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi of Kakoperato

The Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi of Kakoperato is a small Monastery dependency, located within a secluded ravine, full of plane trees, pine trees and bushes.

To the west you can see the steep peaks of Mountain Kerketeas. The Monastery dependency is located southwest of Kosmadeoi village at an altitude of 650 meters, inside a ravine that leads to Seitani. It consists of a small chapel dedicated to Zoodochos Pigi (the Life Giving Spring), and a two-storey building with cells.

It is an ideal place for isolation and godly ascetic exercise and prayer. In a 15 minutes walking distance (some 500 meters), through a narrow path, is located the famous Kakoperatos Cave, where, in the past, use to live hermits, who had built a small chapel called Kakoperatianis or Pera Panagia.
