Panormitis Monastery, Symi

(500+ reviews on the web)
Church
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.

  • On our trip to the island of Symi, we stopped in this monastery. It was early and so not too many visitors. Monastery with beautiful icons and a beautiful architecture. A place full of spirituality. Possibility of a stay by booking a monastic cell.

  • Amazing experience...real greek monastery so peaceful and cultured.....
  • Beautiful monestery with beautiful scene of Symi.
  • Connect with Greece in this beautiful monastery.
  • In and of itself a beautiful monastery, but when it arrives by boat from Rhodes then just too many people are in too short a time. Small Tip: Buy vanilla-cream pie in the monastery bakery - these are the very best!
