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.

  • The Panormitis is mainly the monastery of the Archangel Michael. It is located approximately 40 minutes away from the port of symi and can get there, with small bus that starts each time. The Church many believers come to worship and to make offerings to the miraculous icon of St. At the end of the Gulf, after the monastery there is a small beach that someone can take a dip. "Attraction" AAA is also the Panortiti furnace with well-known local pies.

  • The Archangel will call and then you must go!!!! The place is magic on the sea, PRIM, approachable. The soul calming. There are two small but very interesting museums.

  • Small Monastery located south of the island. We arrived with a tour and we were given an hour to visit. in my opinion perhaps excessive ... There are two small museums but for a fee. beautiful representation of Archangel Michael. Shame about the renovation
