  • The desert, which only had cacti, was transformed into Anthonas. The land full of thorns was transformed into an orchard with fertile fruit.

  • Peaceful, beautiful oasis in the desert. Amazing architecture and gardens. There's a massive fountain at the front that the bees come to for a drink.

And they have information to read about each of the chapels. I would highly recommend a visit here. Read up on the dress code before visiting, but if you don't have your own garments to meet the code, they have some that you can borrow at the front.
  • We attended services in Greek. The Male and females sit separately. You must wear the proper attire, but they will help you with extra clothes. They are very welcoming. The book store has great treasures. It is very peaceful.
