Agioi Anargyri Monastery , located in the village Thymiana, was built around 1639. The Saints of which the Monastery has been named after (St. Damianos and St. Kosmas) are known to cure illnesses and diseases. Thus, in the old days, many people suffering from illnesses (and more specifically, neurological diseases) would flock to the Monastery in hopes of being cured.
According to the legend, the number of nuns living in the Monastery had always been 28. It seemed that every time the number would reach 29, one nun would die, thus maintaining a constant number count.
Since 1987, the Monastery ceased operation following the death of the last nun, Sister Filothei. In 1995, plans were discussed for the establishment of an ecclesiastical high school to be built on the premises.
