Photographer's Note

Sitting daydreaming about my holiday for this year and going back to Samos or maybe Leros this year and cannot wait.

This fine monastery is located in the village of Phythagorio, in the southern part of the island.
Its name means the Monastery of the Virgin of the Grotto.

It is located two kilometers Southeast of the village of Koumaradei and on the side of the road that leads to Miloi, in a very nice environment with an altitude of 225 meters. It has a lovely view of the plain of Chora, Pythagorio and the Asia Minor coast (the mountain of Mikali). It was founded in 1586 the monks (and brothers as well) Neilos and Dionysios and it is dedicated to the Assumption. It has to show a very nice woodcut temple, some frescoes and a lot of holy ware.
