A Christian place

It is said that the holiness of the ancient religion was the base for the foundation of Christianity in Samothraki, since the materials used for the construction of 999 churches on the island were taken from ancient monuments and buildings during the byzantine era. Today there are many of them and excursions and short trips can be organized.

Panagia Krimniotissa. It looks like a balcony of Paxia Ammos, and is built on the top of a steep cliff, which is also the meaning of the name of the church. During the iconomachy 726-843AC, the miraculous picture of Virgin Mary, was found in Paxia Ammos, by shepherds, who build this church to honor and host it.
