Virgin Mary from the cave - Panagia Spiliani

IMG_0005 (2)

At a short distance northwestern to the town of Pythagorio it is found Spiliani: as its name indicates (“spilia” is the Greek word for “cave”) it is a small church situated within a big cave; the church is dedicated to the Presentation of Virgin Mary. The church has a very old icon made of marble presenting Virgin Mary, but its features are hardly visible. Beside the church it is found a spring with holy water.

  3. The countryside is lovely!
