Church of Panagia Kavouradena in Leros

The Church of Panagia Kavouradena in Leros: Panagia Kavouradena in Xirokambos is one of the most beautiful churches on the island of Leros. Tradition has it that a fisherman collecting sea shells among the rocks was bitten by a crab. At the same time, he saw the icon of the Virgin Mary lying on the rocks. He prayed and the wound healed. He then took the icon to the village church, telling all about the miracle he had experienced. That night he dreamt of a woman in black who told him to put her back exactly where he found her. It was then decided that a small church is built exactly where the icon had been found. Every year the Miraculous Icon of the Virgin is celebrated on the 8th of September.
