Location: Zefyria

The church of Panagia Portiani (or Portaitissa) in Milos is located in the center of Zefyria, a village built by the Venetians that constituted the first main town center of the Cycladic island.

The church, formerly a cathedral, is the only one that remains properly preserved up until today in the old, main town.
It is dedicated to the Assumption of Mary and it dates from the 17th century.

The church and the town were abandoned due to a destructive earthquake that took place in the 18th century and many of the holy icons and parts of its splendid interior are found in the new church that is dedicated to the Assumption of Mary in Adamas.

The Greek Ministry of Culture registers Panagia Portiani as a listed monument and, inside it, visitors can admire stupendous mural paintings and several other relics.
