Osios Loukas Travel Guide

Osios Loukas

The monastic complex at Osios Loukas, still inhabited by a few monks, is notable for its exquisite mosaics and its dramatic location, looming on a prominent rise with a sweeping view of the Elikonas peaks and the sparsely inhabited but fertile valley. The outside of the buildings is typically Byzantine, with rough stonework interspersed with an arched brick pattern. The spot is especially beautiful in February when the almond branches explode with a profusion of delicate oval pinkish-white blooms.
