The Hermitage of Saint Athanasios Meteorites represents a small building carved into the rock, which the visitor can see shortly before the entrance of the monastery to the left of the staircase leading to it.
The Old Refectory was built in 1557. It is a remarkable architectural erection, 35m long and 12m in width. Its roof is supported on five columns. The figure of Virgin between the archangels Gabriel and Michael dominates on the interior of the conch.
The Hospital-home for the aged was built in 1572. It is a magnificent architectural building. The roof of its ground floor, made of brick, has a central dome supported on 4 columns, and 8 side cross-vaults.
