Location

Women's retreat or convent (also called a women’s monastery) founded in 1865, 290 meters above the town of Hydra, with an exquisite view of the town and harbor. Accessible via a path that begins at the end of Miaouli Street, where we take a left. (The path to the right leads to the Monastery of the Prophet Elias Profitis Ilias.) The total distance from the the town of Hydra is about 2.6 kilometers.

Descending to the east from the Convent or Monastery of Matrona, in about 1,000 or 1,200 meters we find the men’s Monastery of the Holy Trinity (Agios Triados), which was founded in 1704 and is located on a hill above Mandraki.

From the Holy Trinity Monastery we have three choices:

  1. To head west toward the town of Hydra (about 2,500 meters).
  2. To head east to the Monastery of [Saint Nicholas][TID:22649] (about 1,400 meters).
  3. To descend to the north toward Mandraki (about 1,700 meters) on a rough path that begins shortly after the Holy Trinity Monastery and runs into the road that comes from the town of Hydra.
