The monastery of Katholiko at sunrise

 

The momastery of Katholiko is located inside a small gorge and the only time you can get the morning sun shining on the ruined buildings is around the summer solstice, like in this picture.

I think that if you come in the afternoon (around mid-summer) you will also get the sun shining in (from the western part of the gorge) but it won't illuminate the bridge, at least not from this side. But I guess that if you are not willing to get up more or less in the middle of the night to get there (the sun rises at around 6.00 at the moment) going in the latter part of the afternoon could be your next best option.
