The beauty of Greece
The history of the Acropolis and Athens. The magnificence of the caldera and the ruins of Akrotiri in Santorini. The extraordinary Byzantine monastery of Panaghia Hozoviotissa in Amorgos. The medieval Venetian mansions and beautiful beaches of Naxos. You can see all these and more on our Blue Walk Greece.
An architectural masterpiece
The Monastery of Panaghia Hozoviotissa was founded by the Emperor Alexius Commenius I in the 11th century and built to house an icon of the Virgin Mary. There are different versions of how the icon arrived to the island of Amorgos, the most Eastern of the Cycladic Islands. Whichever story you hear or believe, the monastery where it is housed is nothing short of amazing. Built into the side of the sheer cliffs with a winding path of 300 stone stairs leading up to it, Hozoviotissa is considered one of the religious gems of Greece.
