About 6 km from the village of Rodopos and in the middle of the route to Agios Pavlos we find the famous monastery of Agios Ioannis of Giona.

The festival is famous and famous every year on the 29th of August, with an influx of about 4,000 to 8,000 people, with an all-night party, food and plenty of wine in honor of the Saint.

In front of the church we find the mythical plane tree, where after a miraculous intervention its leaves come out upside down, that is, with the fluff upwards. Curious natural phenomenon.
