Spread over beautiful enclaves on the entire island you can enjoy impressive panoramic views. Some offer accommodation to the visitor. The rooms are the old monks' cells, which have been remodeled and renovated and are perfectly equipped to be accessible all year round, and many have a picnic area and a restaurant to enjoy the traditional cuisine.
