Hydra is a picturesque island with no cars or motor bikes; travel is generally by donkey. While there isn't much to do when on a 3 island tour as I was, there was a walking tour which included the Komiseos Theotokou Monastery, worth visiting.

We were visiting Hydra as part of a three island day tour. We didn't have much time so we signed up for a walking tour of Hydra Town. One of the stops was this church. We were enthralled with all the artifacts in the little museum including supposedly a piece of the cross that Jesus was crucified on. Definitely worth a visit.

No climbing necessary to see this gem (also called the cathedral of Hydra and Church of the Dormition) -- it's right off the main street in the harbor. When my wife and I visited at 6 pm, a Greek Orthodox priest and a lay person chanted off each other, while the priest filled the small church with incense: magical, and we were the only people there, in a town filled with tourists.

This tiny church is so close to the harbour.
It looks very nice and you can ecen pop in.
Hydra is so nice and this small church really fascinating.

The courtyard of the church is off the main port area and not obvious from the outside. Entrance to the church is free. When you enter the church, immediately on the left is a picture of Mary and Jesus surrounded by jewelry. I read that a number of miracles/good outcomes have been attributed to the picture and those who received a blessing, came back and left a piece of jewelry. There is a very small museum outside upstairs that costs 2 euros. As you peak your head through the door, you can just about see everything there is to see. I paid the 2 euros anyways, as I feel it is fine to give a donation.

Looking at the church and possibly the museum is worth it – it only takes a few minutes, both are small.
