Kalograion Monastery Silk Weaving

Since its founding in 1796, the Kalograion Monastery, or “Monastery of the Nuns,” has been a female-only Greek Orthodox monastery, housing hundreds of nuns through the years.

This unique complex is home to a library with several rare manuscripts and a room displaying rare icons, sacred vessels, clergy robes, and the mortal relics of various saints. Slightly more unusual for a place of worship, Kalograion also produces the famous Kalamata silk scarves, known to be among the finest in the world.
