The small town of Agiasos - which, even independent of this church, is worth a visit - is known throughout Greece for this church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The icon of Virgin Mary, brought from Jerusalem by an imperial priest in 803, is said to be a miracle working one, and pilgrims used to walk down a path from Mytiliene 26 kms away to pay homage. In August of every year, monks and islanders still do. It's as interesting for the nonreligious among us as it is for the super-devout. Don't miss this sweet church!

The Church of Panagia is home to a once-a-year pilgrimage when thousands flock here. In the courtyard there is an ecclesiastical and folklore museum.
