Halki Monastery of Taxiarchis Michael Palarniotis

It is located on the hill of Agios Onoufrios north of Chorio and it is called Panormitis. It offers a panoramic view and it is surrounded by trees, in contrast to the surrounding arid landscape. Its katholikon has a double vaulted roof and it is historiated with Byzantine murals. Their first layer dates backs to the 13th century, while the second, more extensive with a more notable technique, dates back to the middle 14th century. In the courtyard of the monastery the geometric shapes of the pebble mosaic constitute an authentic sample of the Dodecanese masterly art.
