What I can see

This small complex consists of two-storey houses in traditional local architecture and a one-room dromical church with a narthex. The recent restoration of the complex was done with respect to the monastic style and gives a tone of sanctity to the densely constructed city centre.

What I can't see

It is the succursal of the Mount Athos Monastery of Simon Petra. The church was built on the site of an older one and has icons from Mount Athos that are over two hundred years old.
