Nymphes Askitario (Nymphs’ Hermitage).

Abandoned for a long time, the monastic Hermitage complex stands Northern to the village Nymphes (Nymphs). It’s considered one of the oldest Christian monuments on the island. Recently, there was a study on its buildings aiming their restoration presented as “Interpreting the breath of history edifices”. Beyond its historic value, the beautiful environment, the dense forest and the bordering valley constitute an interesting destination for all nature lovers and trekkers.
According to the famous legend, in this corner of the world there was a hermit monk from Epirus in the 5th century. An older reference to the Hermitage is from a document in 1371, period when Corfu was ruled by Andecavi, sovereigns from Naples.
