Panagia Kakaviotissa

Location: Thanos   

The Church of Panagia Kakaviotissa in Lemnos, Eastern Aegean: The chapel of Panagia Kakaviotissa is located close to the village of Thanos, 4 km southeast of Myrina. The chapel is located inside a rock cavity on the top of Kakavos Mountain at an altitude of 260 meters. It was founded in 1,416 A.C. by some monks who managed to escape the Turkish invasion in Agios Efstratios island. The church used to be a shelter for monks and hermits.

The hidden gem has a striking location from where it offers an impressive view to the sea and the mountainside of Lemnos. The best time to visit would be in the evening when the chapel is flooded by natural light. The chapel of Panagia Kakaviotissa celebrates on Tuesday after Easter. It requires a 20-minute walking through a dirt road from the end of the asphalt road, which is why this chapel is a frequent hiking destination on the island.
