Location: Town

The lovely church of Panagia Armata in Spetses is a white and yellow chapel located on a hill above the old harbor. This lovely church was built between 1824 and 1830 by the native captain Ioannis Koutsis, to commemorate and honor the defeat of the Ottoman fleet during the naval battle on the 8th of September, 1822.

The church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary because this victory was considered a miracle of hers on the name of her birthday anniversary. Every September, during the festival of Armata, a Holy Mass is held there and garlands are offered at the monuments outside the church.

From this chapel, visitors can enjoy a magnificent view of the harbor and the town of Spetses. This is one of the best spots to enjoy the sunset.
