Guide to churches in Poros island, Greece

Poros has beautiful spots to visit and a few historical churches embellishing the island with their glimmering whiteness and spare lines. It is a real pleasure to discover them while they lay hidden among the dense vegetation.

The historical monastery of Zoodochos Pigis is one of the most visited sites in Poros built on the lush green slopes, 4 km east of the town. It is surrounded by tall strong walls and of unique interest is the wooden iconostasis. The monastery was founded in 1720 by the Metropolitan priest Iakovos. A small church lies in the middle of the monastery with beautiful frescoes and icons of the Virgin and other saints.

In the heart of Poros, close to the old quarter of Kasteli dominates the Metropolis church of Agios Georgios. It houses some precious icons and relics painted by the most renowned Greek painters. Also above Askeli beach you will see the lovely chapel of Panagitsa (Virgin).
