  1. Hi Kostas,

    What are these smaller domes? The fluted roof lines are so interesting!

  2. These are the domes of the main church of the monastery.
    There are 2o main monasteries and about 25 small.Every complex is located inside in a castle,all they have a tower like this one.
    It is a very interesting place,only males may visit monasteries and only by boats.There is not an island,it's a peninsula but the entrance from the land is closed.
