Churches in Astypalea
The Monastery of Saint John is located 12 km west of Chora. Nestled between two steep slopes and offering a fantastic outlook at the islets of Ktenia, Pontikoussa, and Ofidousa, the monastery stands on a hill next to an old castle. Gardens and streams below the church further enhance the beauty of the landscape.
The church of Panagia Portaitissa stands beneath the Castle in Chora. It is all white and it is considered among the most beautiful in the Dodecanese. The church was built in the middle of the 18th century and next to it, there is a small ecclesiastical collection with old icons.
The church of Panagia Poulariani is located in a remote region on the eastern side of the island. There is a natural rock formation here in the shape of the Virgin embracing a child. This church can be accessed only by boat or on foot.
