Churches in Donoussa

Donoussa is a peaceful paradise with beautiful churches spreading throughout the capital and the smaller settlements. Close to the port stands the Church of the Holy Cross, the protector of the island. It is the largest church of Donoussa and on the name day, on September 14th, you will see many faithful gathering at its beautiful courtyard for the most important religious feast of the year.

On the hill, east of Stavros lie the twin 19th-century churches dedicated to Agios Ioannis and Panagia (Virgin). Their location offers the best sunset views of the island. Due to the small size of Donoussa, the villages reveal many chapels including Agios Georgios and Agia Sofia.
