Hosios Loukas Monastery Tours

One of a trio of ancient Greek monasteries listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list, Hosios Loukas Monastery is exquisite example of a Byzantine-era monastery, now preserved as a museum. Founded in the early 10th-century by the hermit monk Luke Stiris, whose tomb is still housed on the premises, the complex comprises two beautifully conserved churches located in a suitably dramatic setting on the tree-lined slopes of Mount Helicon. 

First up is the Katholikón of Ósios Loukás, the larger of the two churches and renowned for its elaborate 11th-century interiors, a masterpiece of colored marble, vivid frescoes and extraordinary mosaics, including icons by 16th-century painter Michael Damaskinos. The neighboring Chapel of Theotókos is Greece’s only remaining 10th-century church and is most impressive from outside, with its classical Byzantine structure and elaborate brickwork.

Practical Info

The Hosios Loukas Monastery is located close to the town of Distomo, in south-central Greece, and is open daily (except Mondays) from 9am-5pm.
