Monastery of St.Georgios Krimnon - Zakynthos island Greece

Monastery of St.Georgios Krimnon - Zakynthos island GreeceThe Monastery of St Georgios Krimnon (of the precipices), built in the middle of 16th century, at the mountainous region of Volimes.

In the town of Anafonitria besides the Monastery of the Holy Mother there is the one of St. George Krimnon built on a promontory from where you can look at the sea. Entering the courtyard of the monastery it is possible to admire on the left the abodes of the resident inhabitants of the monastery, in the middle the tower and on the right a small church.

We do not know when the church was built, but it was destroyed by pirates in 1553 and then rebuilt in Venetian style.

The circular tower was built to defend the monastery from assaults.
