Near Ancient Epidaurus and specifically between the villages of Adami and Koliaki, is an old monastery with the name Kalami. The monastery is marvelously surrounded by beautiful mountain vegetation. The Monastery was founded in the early years of the 17th century but it seems that it existed long before monasticism in isolated hermits. In the 1970 the monastery was reestablished after the establishment of women s fraternity (1972) in place of the old male monastery. Godly souls have worked hard to build the new monastery, which receives many pilgrims every year.
The first time I visited Saint Nektarios, I could not help but fall iedimmately in love with this most holy place. In the past year and a half, I have lost count as to how many times I have taken day trips or have stayed for one or two nights as a guest (or, in the case of Pascha 2011, three nights), and have had the pleasure of staying on the grounds during all four seasons. Saint Nektarios has quite literally given me a renewed life, and I consider it a second home. God bless the Monks of Saint Nektarios.
