About Agios Ioannis Thymianos Monastery

Agios Ioannis Thymianos Monastery is found in the south west of the island. It’s one of the last places on the island down past Kefalos, so if you’re coming from Kos town or the northern parts of the island then it’s a good hours drive.

Getting to the church is relatively easy, there’s a paved road but there’s some hairpin turns and a steep drop so take care, this road leads to a parking area, from there it’s a short walk and some steps to get to the monastery itself.

Once there, and on the drive up, you’ll be treated to some fantastic views of Kos island so don’t forget to bring your camera with you.

Agios Ioannis Thymianos Monastery is quite small but inside you’ll find some incredible wall and ceiling art, wood carvings and other religious items. There’s a place to light a candle in memory or prayer for a loved one.

Outside there’s a traditional bell tower, a small cafe and seating area that’s a delightful place to sit peacefully and enjoy a snack or refreshment whilst taking in the scenery.
