Monastery of Agios Lavrentios

Agios Lavrentios was a monk of Mount Athos, who during the second half of the 14th century arrived in Pelion with other monks in search of a new monastery, after the controversy of the Hesychasts and the Varlaamites. The monastery had several renovations, which show the effect of each era on architecture. The church is a Byzantine church with a dome, while in the interior there are still the frescoes in the sanctuary (the iconography of Pagonis on the birth of Christ is one of the most impressive works) as well as the base of the marble temple.
