Agios Ioannis Prodromos Monastery, Bali
In Bali there is the monastery of Agios Ioannis Prodromos. There is a sign to the monastery on the highway as you approach Bali from the west. The road takes you back onto the mountain behind the highway (south). From the monastery there are exceptional views of the coastline near Bali. The church of the monastery has two aisles and tradition says that there was a small Byzantine church which was incorporated into the present-day church. The north entrance has an inscription with the date 1635 and the church contains frescoes. The monastery has been renovated and the grounds landscaped giving the scene an extraordinarily well kept appearance. A fountain at the highest point of the monastery has very lovely decorations. Another fountain is on the kalderimi (path) behind the monastery that goes from the monastery to Melidoni. It can be reached from the gate behind the church in the monastery or from outside to the left. The fountain is less than 400 metres away.
