Geocache Description:


Decayed Monastery "Agía Ekateríni"

This Cache was placed at the decayed monastery "Agía Ekateríni" (or "Ayía Aikateríni"), near the northeast cape of Corfu.

The monastery 

The location is in the forest on the island "Nissos", that is bordered by the lagoon lake "Antiniótis" in the south and its inflows on eastern and western side. The Antinióti-lagoon is a valuable biotope and paradise for birds with an interesting flora and fauna.

The church

The monastery named after "St. Catherine" dates from 1713 and is not open to the public. Nevertheless there is an open entrace at the given Waypoint on the western side. Inside you find ruinous remains of the buildings, the decoratet entrance of the church and an overgrown olive mill. Be careful as always in lost places! Dont't miss to climb the stairs of the "tower" in the north-west corner of the monastery (accessible from outside) and enjoy the view from there!

Olive mill
 
You can reach the location by car/scooter only from Ágios Spirídonas (from East). Park your vehicle at the roadside near the monastery. From Acharávi (from West) the island is only accessible by bike or by foot.

Team Tommy will maintain the Cache. Thank you for this!

Have fun with the cache, Trollmond!
