Leros Panagia Kavouradena

It is a beautiful chapel half of which is built in the recess of a marine rock to the south-east of Xirokambos. In order to find it, you have to follow the coastal road until the bell tower and, then, follow the gradual path that leads to its threshold. Lower from the small temple, there is the place, where, according to the tradition, a fisherman from Kalymnos took out of the sea a little portable icon of Theotokos that was guarded by crabs. It celebrates on 15 August.
