moni agias irini1The Monastery of Saint Irene Chrysovalanto is an adjacent monastery to that of Saint George at Ilia Monastery and is situated above the Metropolitan camp between theNorth Evia villages of Rovies and Ilia and overlooks the gulf of Evia and the evergreen forest of Valantio. It’s worth visiting and it attracts tourists from all over Greece as its two inner chapels celebrate on the 6th May (St. Onoufrio) and on the 12th June (St. Job). 

These chapels are enhanced with exquisite Byzantine paintings and religious drawings. There is an older, renovated chapel in the olive grove since the new Temple isn’t finished due to lack of funds.
