This Monastery stands on a wooded plateau, with outstanding view to the city of Lefkada and the lagoon of Gira. It is a real oasis of dew and beauty, as it hosts ? except for the religious buildings ? a tropic garden and a small zoo, with deer and a lot of species of birds. Children will love it.
Panagia or Kyra Faneromeni is considered to be the protector of the island and celebrates on the day of Holy Spirit, forty days after the Orthodox Easter.

Directions: It is on the main road from Lefkada to St Nikitas, short after you pass the village of Fryni.
