The monastery of Saint George at Selinari is male and is built during the second Byzantine period.

As one enters the imposing gorge of Selinari, in about the middle, he will meet the monastery, which is an important pilgrimage and has many visitors daily. There is a well-known tradition which says that the visitors who cross the gorge always stop at Agios Georgios for a rest, so ever since if a passer-by does not stop, it is considered a jinx. 

During the Turkish dominion the monk Nicholas, who came from Rdodes, ensconced in the area of Vrachasi with his two brothers and with the help of a star he was led to the place where was the icon of St. George, where afterwards he built the small chapel.

In the monastery there is a hagiography school.
