Astypalea Panagia Flevariotissa

Panagia Flevariotissa is a compound of monasteries, 7km north of the capital. It consists of a main church surrounded by lower buildings forming a courtyard. The Cycladic-style church is cruciform, vaulted and has a dome. The dome is supported by gothic arches. There is a cave at its north wall that was converted to a chapel and is definitely worth seeing. According to a local legend a miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary was found in that cave.
