Panayia Spiliani Church

Panayia Spiliani Church Review

Enter this spacious cave and descend sharply downward to the tiny church of Panayia Spiliani (Virgin of the Grotto). Half-church, half-cavern, this most unique landmark, located northwest of Pythagorio, is also called Kaliarmenissa ("for good travels"), and features an antique icon of the Virgin Mary as well as a pool of what is considered to be holy water.
