Agia Triada


The monastery of Agia Triada is the newest monastery on the island of Samos. It was built in 1824, by a monk named Neofytos, over the ruins of an older church. The monastery is located near the settlement of Mytilene, at an altitude of 120 meters.

Inside the temple, you will have the opportunity to admire the silver icon of Zodochos Pigi (19th century), as well as the ornate marble dome of the 20th century. The dome of the church is supported by columns, that are said to have been taken from an ancient building in Glyfada (Pythagorion). Finally, it should be noted that the monastery houses a remarkable library.
