Hidden inside the green forest of Hymettus, at the area with the same name, is the Monastery of Kaisariani. Dedicated to the Issodia of Theotokos, it is one of the most important medieval Christian monuments. The main church is estimated that it was constructed in the 11th-12th century over the foundations of an Early Christian church. The monastery has a rich library, while it was also an important philosophy centre.
