Panagia Spiliani, Samos

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.

Another church dedicated to Aghios Georgios (St. George) and a few cells are situated just out of the cave. Spiliani is a dependency of the Monastery of Hozoviotissa of Amorgos. The locals use to call the monastery “Kaliarmenissa”, which would mean in English something like “the one who gives good sails”.

Access to the monastery is easy from Pythagorio by taxi, as well as by rented or private car and motorbikes.
