Also an interesting route for hikers is the walk from Lake to Agios Georgios Monastery.The Holy Monastery of Saint George is characterized as "new" to distinguish it from the old onethat was lower in the lake.In the Monastery of St. George there is also the Hidden School that functioned during the Ottoman empire. It is still in excellent condition and is offered for a visit.


During the Revolution of 1821, the Monastery functioned as the Headquarters, where under the leadership of Th. Kolokotronis several meetings took place of chieftains from Corinthia and Arcadia.
The view from the  balcony of the Monastery is imposing and peaceful, offering a scenery of wild nature  and panoramic view of the Lake .
