Το μοναστήρι βρίσκεται στο Ακρωτήριο του Τράχηλα, χτισμένη μέσα στο φαράγγι των Αγίων Πάντων και προσφέρει υπέροχη θέα προς τη θάλασσα.
Χαρακτηριστικές είναι οι σπηλιές που υπάρχουν μέσα στο φαράγγι τις οποίες χρησιμοποιούσαν οι ερημίτες της Μονής. Η μονή ιδρύθηκε τον 13ο αιώνα και ανακαινίσθηκε το 1620. Από το 1870 και μέχρι το 1901 αποτελούσε μετόχι της Μονής Τοπλού. Το καθολικό είναι δίκογχος ναός αφιερωμένος στην Κοίμηση της Θεοτόκου και στον Άγιο Γεώργιο, με τοιχογραφίες του 1455.
Το όνομα του μοναστηριού (Φανερωμένη) δόθηκε από μια εικόνα της Παναγίας που βρέθηκε σε μια μικρή σπηλιά δίπλα στην εκκλησία. Μια επιγραφή μνημονεύει την ανακαίνιση που έγινε το 1624. Οι τοιχογραφίες σ' αυτό το μοναστήρι του τέλους του δέκατου τέταρτου αιώνα χρονολογούνται στο 1455 και είναι μαυρισμένες από τον καπνό που προκάλεσαν οι Τούρκοι με φωτιά.

In Papadiokambos you’ll meet a long beach with large stones and rocks and an archaeological site. In some places a few bays with pebbles are formed, where you can swim. The only sure thing is that you’ll be alone, since the place is completely secluded. There is almost no infrastructure around, so be sure you have supplies with you.
Papadiokambos’ strong winds and big waves keep most visitors away. This, however, even in winter attracts the lovers of windsurfing. Papadiokambos (known by windsurfers as Faneromeni) is one of the best spots for wave sailing in Greece. Wave sailing is one of the most striking aspects of the sport. The area has strong currents, large waves 3-4m high and has actually no beach. Some places are very dangerous and you should be very careful and in advanced level, so as not to break your equipment on the rocks.
Valuable information on the daily life of a Minoan farmers family and fishermen in Papadiokampos, 10km west of Sitia, just before the great catastrophe reveals the archaeological research conducted in the region.
The excavation revealed what exactly did those who lived there just before leaving everything. On the plate was a pot with barnacles, crushed snails and crabs, which broke and its contents scattered around the floor. Two large flat stones near the fireplace was probably seats. In the courtyard of the house was a platter with barnacles, which the minoans probably eaten raw. Even on the corner room was found 2 kilos of "fresh" snails and everything else found in the cooker and the floors were broken. We assume that someone picked them that moment from the sea and left the basket to the corner.Equally impressive were the results from the study of animal bones.It seems that the inhabitants had to leave suddenly, leaving their food in the middle. The only one who stayed behind was the guardian of the house, the dog, which is buried under the rubble.
2km after Skopi, just before the monastery, two neighboring small pebbly beaches are shaped with crystal clear waters.
The first, known as Platani, hosts a small picturesque tavern, while the second, known as Agioi Pantes is totally secluded.
The beaches are formed at the exit of two lush canyons, running parallel to each other. One of them is the Agii Pandes Gorge. Indeed, near the coast there are many plane trees, which give their name to the region (Platani means plane tree). The area is totally undeveloped and is ideal for seclusion and quiet swimming. Finally, the area west of the Cape Trahilos, called Papadiokambos, is considered an ideal spot for windsurfing.
