A two-storey tower with a dome in the yard of the Agioi Anargyroi monastery in the area of Agia in Thessaly.

The tower was built in 1588, the year that the rest of the monastery was built (probably replacing an older monastery).

The monastery went through various renovations. The frescoes of the basilica date in the 17th century. The last restoration took place in 1995.

The rock above the monastery offered shelter to a monastic community which thrived around the 12th century. Two caves-hermitages with frescoes are preserved from that period.
