Rebirth of History



A historical monastic village

Tucked in the heart of the greatest olive grove in Europe, Kapsaliana village was once a real settlement, inextricably linked with the emblematic 16th century Arkadi Monastery. Restored to incredible effect, the walls vibrate with the memories of a deeply symbolic past, at the core of which was, and is, the olive tree.
