Churches in Kalymnos

The island of Kalymnos is home to many churches and monasteries that bear witness to its rich history and adorn its picturesque locations. The glorious Monastery of Agios Savvas stands proudly right above the port of Pothia, the island's capital, and hosts beautiful frescoes. Along the coast of Pothia lies the Metropolitan Church of the Christ Our Savior with an amazing collection of frescoes and icons made by the local artists.

The church of Saint John the Baptist is another site that is worth visiting, perched on top of a hill overlooking Pothia. It houses the tomb of Saint Savvas known for its healing powers. A few nuns live in the old part of the monastery. Some of the lesser known religious sites are Agios Nikolaos, the Monastery of Saint Catherine (Agia Ekaterini) and the monastery of Analipsi.
