What's Agios Georgios Krimnon Monastery Like
Agios Georgios Krimnon monastery, also known as St George Kremnon is found in the town of Volimes in the north west of Zakynthos. It’s around 35km from the capital Zakynthos town and that would usually take about 45 minutes by car.
If you’re itching to get away from the busy resorts on the southeast coast then head to the northern and western parts of the island, this area is pristine, remote, and filled with interesting attractions. One such example is the Monastery of Agios Georgios Krimnon
Dating back to the sixteenth century, the stone watch tower, originally constructed as a measure against piracy, this historical religious site commands impressive views over Navagio Beach and the Ionian Sea.
The monastery’s medieval library is unfortunately kept in Venice and the church’s original murals have long been destroyed by war, but you can still explore the visitors’ centre and learn about famous residents like Agios Gerasimos and Pahomios Roussanos.
