The Holy Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi in Kakoperato, a little further from the village Kosmadei, is a small retreat in a deserted gorge of Kerkis at an altitude of 600 meters. It consists of a small church, dedicated to the Zoodochos Pigi and a 2-floor building with cells. The gnarled path within the rocks leads to the known cave of Kakoperato, where ascetics used to live earlier, who had built a small church. This is where the canyon starts, leading to the Megalo Seitani beach. In order to reach it, one should either come from Kosmadei, or from the Windmills, located a little further from Marathokampos.
