Monastery Loukous

Located 8.5 km from the Paralio Astros on the road towards Tripoli, meet the Monastery Loukous, a beautiful monastery, near the ruins of the Villa of Herod Atticus, which has come to be known as “Moni Loukous ”  The name of Luke, in a version from the woman’s name, Lucian (perhaps from Latin LUCUS – sacred grove).  During daylight hours the Monastery is tranquil, in a picturesque setting. It is no coincidence,the fact that Herod Atticus, chose this place to build a Villa.
