The monastery of St. George is located on the northern side of Vourgareli, surrounded by a forest with fir trees. It is the ornament of the village and one of the most important sites in the mountain range of Tzoumerka.
The spiritual center
A preserved historic monument.
It was founded in c.1690 and restored in 1714 according to an inscription found on the wall between the pronaos and the katholikon. Its great reputation is due to the great and invaluable national offer, since during the hard times of Turkish rule, in the difficult years of Ottoman domination, it was the national, religious, and spiritual center of the whole region of Tzoumerka.
The revolution against the Turks
During the last few years in the monastery, it takes place a representation of the revolution against the Turks in Tzoumerka that took place on May 15, 1821.
