The monastery of Kipina, just outside the village of Kalarrites, seems to be a part of the rock inside which it is built.
It was constructed in 1212 in the honor of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and its name probably originates from the gardens that were cultivated by the monks beneath it.
A short path leads to the wooden bridge above the 4-meter-high cliff that will take you inside the monastery.
Inside the monastery a secret door leads to a crypt, where the cave during the period of Ottoman domination and national resistance was the hiding place of the undercover Greeks.
Impressive frescoes decorate the interior of the church dating from the 17th century.
