Old Monastery of Saint Laura

Southwest of today's monastery of Saint Laura (Agia Lavra), at the site of the old monastery (paliomonastiro), the first church of the monastery was built in the mouth of a cave in 961 AD. Two sets of frescoes have survived on its exterior walls. We can reach it by following a short footpath for 5 minutes (see the map).
