Archangel Michael Panormitis Symi
The monastery of the Archangel Michael Panormitis is the most valuable attraction of the island. Built in the 6th century, but what we see today is the result of the restoration of the new buildings of the 18th century. The monastery is hosts two museums, the folklore and the religious. Here the pilgrims are queuing, but it is worth the wait: the energy is widespread in the church. Renowned for his miracles Panormitis is a major pilgrimage in the Aegean. In the monastery you will find Father Ierotheos, who will be there to guide you, to tell you the story of the miraculous images and charitable activities of the monastery. The monastery has cells located in big hostels where you can stay during your visit to the monastery. Residents claim that from wherever you throw a bottle or a tribute to the sea, even from the far distant Australia, despite the fact that they are traveling for many miles, if you really believe, your vow will reach to Panormitis of Symi.
And who knows, if you’re lucky you might see one of these really wonderful tributes to enter slowly into the harbor.
