Nea Moni (Chios)

This weekend I uploaded 3 pages of the Nea Moni (New Monastery) of Chios.

Very much to my regret, we could not see almost anything of the Katholikon (the most important church in a monastery), because it was under restauration (details in my website). I just took it for granted it was open, but I was wrong; I should have called the Tourist Information before we decided to go to Chios (although the whole travel was enjoyable enough).

If any of you are planning to go there next summer and if one of your main purposes is to visit the monastery, check it beforehand.
