Panormitis Monastery, Symi

(550+ reviews on the web)
Church Tourist Spot
Situated in the tiny seafront village of Panormitis sits Panormitis Monastery, with a Greek Orthodox Church dedicated to the island's patron saint, Archangel Michael. Monks still inhabit the monastery, and pilgrims from across Greece travel to attend the religious festival held here. Step inside the Venetian-style church to view the ornate gold fixtures and scenes from the Bible adorning the walls in paintings and frescoes. Visit the two on-site museums, one displaying various religious items and the other showcasing folk culture. This area is best reached by boat.
