The Holy Monastery of Archangel Michael is the largest monastery on the island of Thassos and is located 33km from the village of Limenas. It is built on a large rock on the cliff above the sea and overlooks Mount Athos and the Aegean. Here are kept nails from the crucifixion of Christ and a piece of Holy Material. In 1974, nuns came with a devout monk, where they worked, and with many donations from the faithful, the monastery acquired a large fortune. Today it is a women's monastery, dependent on the Mount Athos monastery of Philotheos.
