The Holy Monastery of Simonopetra

History of the Monastery

The Holy Monastery of Simonopetra was founded in the 13th century upon a rock by Saint Simon and celebrates the Feast of the Nativity of Christ.


The rock upon which Simonopetra is built has a height of 300 meters above sea level. Simonopetra appears from the sea as a combination of three seven-story apartment buildings.


It has been destroyed by fire many times.


The miracle-working left hand of Saint Mary Magdalene is treasured in the monastery.


The library, scientifically sorted and organized, totals today about 32,000 volumes of printed books.
