Saint Nicholas Sintza
SAINT NICHOLAS SINTZA is the name of yet another monastery suspended on the cliffs in a cool, verdant ravine. Most routes are on either side of the ravine, but only 5 minutes to the right of the monastery is also sub-sector Mikri Sintza, and further still to the right is Garden of Dionysus, a big overhanging limestone face.
