    Pilgrimage to the patron protector of the island, devoutness and prayer. The appointment of Portal material and spiritual goods.

    Already seen the inside of a lot of churches, but this one is very nice. What a pomp and circumstance. At the entrance are handed out to bare shoulders/legs shawls. Too bad no photos may be made. A must.

    Not very old but trully impressive. Worth visit the museum nearby which hosts icons and relics from the important Strofades monastery.  more »

    The most sacred place in the island, with frescoes depicts the life of saint Dionysos and also the sarcophagus of the saint Dionysos situated in the right corner.

    Impressive building and interior. There is a short ceremony inside in which you can see a whole dead body through a glass coffin.
