Serifos Panagia

The small village is very close to Pyrgos and it has little taverns for lunch or coffee. It is worth walking until the small, cool square where the church of Panagia is located, the oldest one in Serifos, built in the 10th century. Panagia operated as a monastery whose cells constituted a shelter for the refugees of Peloponnese and the neighboring islands during the Revolution of 1821. Along with the few surrounding houses the small refugee settlement was formed. During the celebration of the Dormition of Virgin Mary (August 15) there is a three-day festival with food offering.
