Sedefadası - Antirovithos


St. Ignatius founded a monastery for men on Antirovithos, in the mid-ninth century, one of three monatic esablishments he built on the Princes' Isles, all of which are mentioned in the list made by Manuel I Comnenus in 1158. The monastery on Antirovithos was rrestored in 1180 by the patriarch theodosius Boradiotis. All that remains of the monastery today is a fragmentary ruin on the northwestern promontory of the island.
