VISITING THE MONASTERY OF VIRGIN MARY

Visiting the Monastery of Virgin Mary

Steep cliffs that cut vertically into the sea, as if watching over her vastness. Over the castle of Chora, imposing, stands the Panagia of Folegandros, a monastery dedicated to the death of the Virgin Mary. Built on 18th century, high on the cliffs, she calmly and gracefully watches over the Aegean, between Milos and Santorini. The miraculous icon of Virgin Maria of Folegandros and the beautiful view from the monastery is the best reward for all visitors.
