Monastery of Saint Nicholas Cabasilas in Kavasila of Ilia

The village of Kavasila in Ilia, Greece is named after Saint Nicholas Cabasilas. It was here that Saint Nicholas came towards the end of his life and reposed in the hermitage he founded around the year 1392. 
In around 1650 the residents of the village built a small church at the borders of the village dedicated to Saint Nicholas Cabasilas, to honor him for having reposed there, although he was not officially canonized until 1982. It is said that the Turks, who did not allow new churches to be built, would tear down this small church, but the residents would build it over and over again.
