Monastery of Panagia Myrtiotissa

weather forecast by weather.gr

Above Myrtiotissa beach, the monastery of Panagia Myrtiotissa, built in the 14th century, has taken its name from the icon of Virgin Mary that was found there, amidst the myrtles ("myrties" in Greek). It’s a pretty tough climb, but it is worth it. The all-white quaint monastery houses many ancient icons, wall paintings and other religious relics, many of which are in excellent condition. Last but not least, we must mention the efforts of the priest who spends almost all of his time and energy in the restoration of the monastery. On the 24th of September every year, the Fair of Panagia Myrtiotissa takes place here, gathering locals and tourists from all over the island.
