In a wonderful location right above the ravine of Lousios river, stands the Monastery of Timios Prodromos built in the 16th century. There is some evidence indicating that the monastery or part of it is much older (12th century). In it are housed important murals of the 16th century. Also, there is an interesting library and a historical archive (letters of Kolokotronis, etc.). During the years of the revolution, it offered refuge to the fighters and significant economic assistance to the fight. It celebrates on the 17 / 5 and the 29 / 8.
