Astypalea Panagia Poulariani

You can reach the chapel of Panagia Poulariani if you take the path that begins from a certain point of the rural road to Vathi going southeast. The shape of the rock into which the chapel was built brings to mind the image of the Virgin and Child. This humble Orthodox church is said to be the sailors’ patron. According to old fishermen stories, a light that seemed to be coming from the church inexplicably came on during bad weather and helped the fishermen find their way back.
