Milos Panagia tou Kipou

One of the most important country churches in Milos, whose initial phase dates back to the early-Christian period, is located in Kipos location, west of Provatas (there is a sign). The fully-white chapel has a forecourt which offers a great view to the entire south Milos. Important traces of the island’s past are kept in its interior. At the bottom of the western wall you will see the whole side of a Roman sarcophagus, which has the ancient decoration (the lesbian wavelet) at the top, while it has been scrapped underneath in order for Christian symbols of crucifixes and spirals to be engraved. You will see a rare early-Christian baptistery in the sanctuary. It is cruciform with stairs and ancient structural materials with traces of frescoes.
