At the foot of the Acarnanian Mountains of Tsirika, as it is often called, by the locals, settles St.Dimitrios Monastery.
Dating back to the 16th Century this place reeks of history and religions significance. They say that the little church in the folds of the Monastery was almost destroyed be fire. The charmed ceiling is testimony to this. Behind the little church one can see the huge boulder rock. There is only a cement plate between the rock and the church.Legend has it that the rock fell from the mountain top and it was only by a miracle that the church was saved from being demolished.
In the fact they say that Saint Dimitrios stopped the boulder from destroying the church. Hence the Monasteris name.
The people of Paleros also hold the Monastery in the high regent, as they consider it to be the protector of Paleros and its people.
Nature lovers can also find satisfaction by visiting the area, as the journey leading up to the Monastery hides numerous wonders. For instance-One can smell the fresh oregano and thyme that perfumes –aromatizes-the Paleros countryside.
