Epano Chrepas Monastery in Tripoli, Greece
The historical monastery of the 12th century is located only 10km from Tripoli. According to tradition, the miraculous icon on the sanctum's chancel screen was found in this place three times, while some followers were taking it back to the temple of Agios (St.) Georgios in Tripolis. Therefore, the church was built here and, then, Epano Chrepas monastery for nuns. Although its architectural style has deteriorated, the altitude of 1280m in which it is built, provides a breathtaking view to its visitors.
