The chapel by itself wouldn't be a great attraction, what makes it special is its location. 'Panagia Krimniotissa' as this little church is called in Greek can be translated as 'Holy Mary by the abyss'. In fact the white washed chapel sits on an isolated...More

The view is just breathtaking! Unbelievable. One of the highlights of the island! Incredible. There is a small tavern there as well where one can enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets! No words!

Great view, looking at pachia ammos. Has a very nice coffee and eating place. Watch out the cars, too bumpy roads

Nice small church, located very high în the mountain, looking to the sea, in a very quiet place, near to the God, a very good place for meditation and proud! Must see!

Even if you are not into religious relics and churches, it is definetely on of the best places to visit and watch the sun set. Great views over Imvros island and there is even a small but very nice taverna.

A very small church high up the mountain. Excellent view of the "pahia ammos" beach. Somewhat difficult to reach, very narrow road close to the cliff but with some attention it is no problem.

We visited the church this summer and I can tell, the road to get up there is quite difficult cause a big part of the road is no asphalt road. When you arrive at the church, there is a little tavern with a breathtaking view...More

It is not easy to reach the place, you will need a car, but if you choose to make an effort , make it for sunset. It is magical ! There is a cafe on the foot of the church - try it!

Very good view to the Aegean, but with poor gravel road that leads up there. There is also a small tavern that serves only one dish per day (different every time) but it is so well baked that you always ask for more. The view...More
