The monastery Mega Spileo is located in a large cave in a sheer cliff, where Mount Chelmos drop down to the gorge of the Vouraikos river, 10 kilometres northwest of the town of Kalavrita. The cave was known in antiquity, and the geographer Pausanias reports that the daughters of Proetus found refuge there during their madness. In the first Christian centuries, Christian hermits occupied the cave.
It is considered the eldest monastery in Greece and it was built by the brothers and monks, Symeon and Theodore.
The main temple has riveting murals dated in 1653, marble floors and winged altarpiece with wood cravings.
