Monastery of Holy Mary Portaitissa


The monastery was built east of the village Kornofolia. The Monastery keeps a copy of the renowned image of Holy Mary of Athos, as well as relics of the foot of Saint Charalambos. The monastery underwent many disasters during the Greek-Turkish War in the early of 20th century. Nevertheless, it hosted many refugees during the great displacement in 1922.
