  • Saint Adrianos
    The floor however is made of stones testifying perhaps to Byzantine period Only expert archaeologists will have to testify Elders of the village claim that there was a wall inscription dated 1400 But the fire has burned that church 2 times fading traces of date On the wall there is a picture indicating that the paintings were made in 1753 At the church a nun named Zoi is responsible for caring it all Regularly she organizes special liturgies pies dedicated to Saint Fanourios for example and overnight liturgies Saint Adrianos is considered a miraculous saint and there is a large gathering of Christians to him from all over Greece Beside the beautiful gate of the church there is a hole which upon seeing it for the first time is believed that only a small child can pass through But up until now each person who has tried to pass has managed to do so regardless of his weight It is said that it is very good for the visitor to get through the hole Monastery of St Demetrios Karakalas Very close to the village of St Adrianos and at the foot of Arachnaio mountain top is the Monastery of Karakalas The monastery had a second name Xirokastelo but the locals do not call it like that anymore Karakalas name seems to have derived from the Turkish translation of the word Xerokasteli which is Kouroukoule The corruption of the Turkish word from locals led to the word Karakalas This is the most plausible of the many speculations existing about the name Karakalas The exact date of the founding year of the monastery of Saint Demetrios is not known but there is a description of its large property in 1696 This suggests that probably it should have served several centuries The role of the monastery in the siege was very important but also in the years of the struggle as it was an arsenal of Fighters In 1829 it had been recorded that in the monastery there was an abbot Dionysius six monks and fifteen employees In the early 19th century it was largely destroyed by fire while part of its materials that have survived are said to have been used for the construction of the Ottoman mosque later State House in Nafplio city In 1928 its property was expropriated and distributed mainly to pastoralists whose sheep grazed in the area In 1934 it merged with the Abbey of Talantio and in 1936 it merged with Abbey of Agnountos and Archangels In 1943 unfortunately the Germans burned the monastery and blew up a part of it In 1963 the monastery converted to monastery of females and then a new era starts blooming It is known according to the General Archive of State that the architectural character of the monastery is a fortress as a large building complex that could defend itself if need be The buildings of the monastery were inwardly focused and embellished with arches and large adjacent loggia The monastery
