The Holy Monastery of Rousanou

Local nameΙερά Μονή Ρουσάνου
LocationKalambaka, Greece

This monastery is an extraordinary complex spreading over three floors. The main church (katkolikon) and the cells are located on the ground floor and the rest of the building is reserved for reception halls, an exhibition room and guest quarters.

The monastery was founded in the middle of the 16th century on ruins of older churches. After that, it gradually fell into decline and during World War II, it was raided by the Germans. Fortunately, it was restored during the 1980s and it has been occupied by a community of nuns since 1988.
