Monastery of the Virgin Birth Ampelakiou
University of Peloponnisos
In an inaccessible region, in a ravine, stands the Monastery of Ampelaki dedicated to the Birth of Virgin Mary. In a nearby cave the icon of Panagia Makelaritissa has been found, along with the bones of an unknown hermit. Tradition says that the hermit used the cave to hide from the Turks who destroyed the monastery, taking with him the icon. Today, the bones of the hermit and the icon are stored in the monastery. The icon is attributed to Luke the Evangelist and it is considered miraculous. The monastery celebrates on the 8 / 9.
