colours of monastery
The Holy Monastery of Agia Anastasia is situated to the south-east of Thessaloniki near the village of Vasilika. It is a medium-sized monastery that was founded about 900 years ago, having as its patron Saint Anastasia the Healer (Φαρμακολύτρια - literally "Bringer of Potions"), whose relics were guarded here until last year when they were stolen. This was a highly unusual event as it appears the thieves had no other purpose than taking these holy remains - all the other treasures of the church remained untouched. Since last April, when the theft took place, flags around the monastery have flown at half mast, black drapes have covered coats-of-arms, and lenten colours have been displayed in the church.
