Monastery of St. Dionysios

One of the stops on our trip to Mt. Olympus last year was the Monastery of St. Dionysios, near Litochoro. The old monastery was established in the 16th century and was unfortunately destroyed by the Germans during the Second World War. The new one was build some kilometers away from the ruins and its church is in the traditional Orthodox style that you can find all around the Balkans.
