When we visited Spili we noted in out Lonely Planet that this monastery was open to the public to wander round. The arcitecture is beautiful and the views are stunning. Well worth a visit.

it is next to the main Street. there are more churches in Spili (of course) but this is a monastery and hence big and easy to recognise. it is about 500m away from the center.
