Ikosifinissa Monastery

The Holy Monastery of Panagia Ikosifinissa is the second most important monastery of Macedonia that until now, crowds of faithful people visit the monastery in order to pray in favor of Panagia Ikosifinissa and to embrace the Acheiropiitos icon of her.

The Holy monastery is located on the high way of Kavala – Serres (on the limits of two prefectures), on the north side of Paggeo mountain, right after the Kormista village, in a green area, at an altitude of 743 meters.

Today, 25 nuns live at the monastery with the nun Alexia as their Mother Superior.

The monastery is a cross-source monastery, i.e. it belongs to the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinopole (administratively) and to the Holy Metropolis Drama (ecclesiastically).
