The Monastery of the Virgin Kalopetra, translated to English, is Good Stone/Rock, is found at the top of the Butterfly Valley jungle walk. It sits proud and by itself with a great overview vista of the island. The mosaic tile work is photo worthy. It was constructed in the last 1700's by a Gree print  on top of an ancient temple from BC times.  It was built, in a virgin pine forest, in gratitude for the waters found in this area that assisted in curing his daughters tuberculosis.

The Prince later was to become the grandfather of the leader of the 1821 Greek Revolution.
