Moni
 

Moni is perched on the foothills of Mount Fanari.
From the balcony of some of the restaurants there is a beautiful view across the fertile plain of the Tragea with its olive groves, interspersed by small villages.

Traditional weaving is often on exhibition and for sale in the village.
From Moni a footpath leads down to the Byzantine church of Panagia Drosiani.

  Panagia Drosiani, parts of which date back to the 6th century, is the second oldest Byzantine church in Southern Europe. The church is open to visitors, and has beautiful restored frescoes, the earliest of which date back to the 7th century. Several layers of frescoes were found during restoration work.

From the church footpaths lead through the olive groves to other Byzantine churches near Halki.
