Prodromou monastery in Arcadia

In addition to its architectural specificity, this monastery has played a very important role during the Greek revolution against the Turkish occupation in the 18th and 19th century, as it served as a medical station for the injured Greek fighters and as a supply station for the Greek soldiers. Bullets from the Turkish guns on the main entrance door are indicative of the fights that took place a few centuries ago!
