  • 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 »
