Apart from the "kasteli", it is worthseeing the Monastery of Profitis Ilias on the top of the mountain, built in the 18th century. Several precious religious artefacts are shown to the visitor; among them the adorned mitre of the Patriarch Gregorius the fifth, crosses and silver bound books, as well as byzantine icons dating back to the 15th century.
