    Short Description In Aetochori of the municipality of Traianoupolis, about 11 km from Alexandroupoli, the male monastery of St. John the Theologian was founded in 1981. It soon became known in the area and it is spiritual oasis in the border region of Evros.
    The building complex, with the triconch katholikon at its center, is spacious and hospitable. It includes a second church, dedicated to the Thracian saints, hosting space for pilgrims and a conference room.
