A wonderful tiny monastery with an absolutely beautiful view. Don't miss out if you are in the area. You can literally oversee everything from here. Unless you love hiking there is a good road to drive up the mountain. Most of street is paved, at least all steep parts which makes the car ride quite comfortable.
The view from up here is breathtaking. You will see a lot of Paros north and east coast and from up there we spotted some very beautiful beaches we had missed from sea level. The road to reach the summit starts from a little square with three ruins of windmills and is mostly paved. Beware it becomes VERY steep and VERY narrow in the last kilometers and if you happen to meet another vehicle there will be no space to pass. One of them will have to engage in a tricky reverse. I tried with a normal Fiat Panda diesel and the car was ok but stopped short if the last kilometer to be safe. Definitely worth the risk though or if you are fit this would be a nice introspective trek.
