Panormitis Monastery, Symi

4.2
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.

  • Big koryfaias pilgrimage, religious and national importance with huge history. We go every year. The sensational thaymatoyrgi icon of Archangel Michael dominates the perikali Temple with its remarkable hagiographies and architecture. Unique landscape. Joy God-when you go you won't want to leave!

  • Attention if you take a trip to Symi, a Council do not take the exit which understand the stop at the monastery. You will lose 2 h, the monastery's tiny back inside with a full tourist liner and it is in the works. There is nothing to do there.

  • Interesting place! Cozy bay and beautiful architecture of buildings. On the territory of the monastery are several museums with various exhibits.
  • Panormitis is for sure the most beautiful church in the Dodecanese. The atmosphere is soaked with mysticism to the point that even non believers get deeply fascinated.
  • Beautiful bay with a fascinating and intact monestary. Must see.
  • A place not to be missed! Beautiful views driving there & mystical & magical sensations once inside the monastery
  • If you find yourself on Symi please come and see this. The drive across the island alone will produce some incredible views. The Monastery itself is beautiful and a nice peaceful retreat in the off months.
