Monastery of Panayia Kremasti in Lanthi stands impressive and impresses with its volume as if hanging on the rock. It is found in the local community of Lanthi in the municipality of Pyrgos and is said to have been discovered when, 800 years ago, residents of the area saw a light in the evening in a hole in the rock. So someone was hung with a rope, who found the image of the Virgin Mary suspended. The monastery celebrates on August 23rd. Thousands of pilgrims during the evening pray and on the feast day are flocking to worship the Lord. The monastery receives thousands of pilgrims throughout the year. From the church’s balcony, the visitor will see all the beauty of the land of Ilia up to the forest of Foloi and the majesty of Erymanthos. Visitors can go to the monastery from the village of Lanthi or from Lambeti at 8 km. In both cases the scenery is beautiful. Today the monastery consists of 17 Nuns.
