Saint Theodore Monastery was originally built in the 14th century, but was not finished until nearly 500 years later in 1860, with construction funded by contributions from other neighboring monasteries. Follow signs from the main road to Gjipe beach, a beautiful and clean beach hidden inside the narrow neck of Gjipe Canyon. Part of the descent will be on foot on narrow, rocky paths, extreme caution should be exercised when descending or ascending these paths to the beach. Admission is free to the monastery, though a small donation for its upkeep is encouraged.
