Monastery of Panagia Eikonistria

This monastery is the holiest place of the island because the miraculous painting of the Virgin was discovered here around 1650. Also, Dionysius the Elder, a great spiritual figure of the island, used to live in this small monastery. The Katholikon, which is dedicated to the Virgin, is a basilica with a dome and was built in the 17th century. There are hagiographies everywhere in the interior, but the smoke from the candles has destroyed a big part of these wall paintings.
