The Monastery of Saint George (Manastiri i Shën Gjergjit) consists of a reconstructed church from the 14th century, within the walls of a monastery complex. It is located on the hill of Dema and offers stunning views over the Ionian See on one side, and the Butrint Lake to the other side. Down the hill there is also Monastery Beach, one of the best beaches in Saranda.
How To Get There
The complex is located halfway between Saranda and Ksamil. You can take the bus to Butrint and ask the driver to stop at the road that leads to the monastery. There is a sign that says “Manastiri i Shën Gjergjit” and from there it is a short, but steep walk up the hill. For more convenience you can also book a tour, take a taxi or rent a car.
